Sunshine State Orange Bread Recipe

This pretty glazed loaf is bursting with fresh citrus flavor. Walnuts add a subtle nuttiness and yummy texture to the moist slices. It's one recipe you can serve year after year, and never tire of it. —Mrs. MRS PRISCILLA Gilbert, IND HBR BCH, Florida

"I found this recipe as a result of accidentally purchasing high pulp orange juice which I don't like but don't want to throw away. The bread has a lovely light orange color, great texture and wonderful orange flavor. It's very easy to make, my 5 year old daycare boy had a great time helping me make this. We skipped the nuts and orange peel and it still turned out great. I will be sharing this with my Bible study group and imagine they will love it too. I also love that it is different from the usual banana or lemon quick breads. You won't be sorry if you try this one!"
