This bread smells wonderful when baking. It's refreshing and light. Next time I would add chopped dark chocolate to make it even more irresistable.

There are way better recipes for orange nut bread. There wasn't anything I liked about this recipe, flavor, texture, or even how it looked.

Excellent! So easy to make. I did use splenda instead of white sugar, and margerine instead of shortening. I made it in one regular-size loaf pan and it was done baking in 25 minutes. My first time making and eating orange bread. It was delicious!

This recipe was easy to make and tasted great! It's pretty forgiving, too - I used pecans instead of walnuts and it tasted fine!

THIS WAS A MOIST AND FLAVORFUL CAKE! I BAKED IT IN A BUNDT PAN FOR 35 MINUTES AND IT WAS GREAT. INSTEAD OF WALNUTS I ADDED 1 CUP CHOCOLATE CHIPS, VERY NICE COMPLIMENT TO THE ORANGE FLAVOR. THIS IS A KEEPER!

the smell of orange is wonderful, but it's too sweet.i used less than a cup of sugar, and it's sweet.i would recommend using 3/4 cup of sugar.
