"Grandma-Ag's Orange Bread - This bread is a fond memory of my childhood, visiting Agnes Frances Primm, my Grandma-Ag. As a young adult, I tried to duplicate the recipe, and unable. I went back and begged her for the secrets of it. When I asked her how long it had taken to develop the tricky recipe, she flattened my ego by telling me she'd gotten it out of a magazine years before! I like to make it for Christmas."

grated orange zest
2 1/2 cups
3 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/4 cups
I wanted to try this recipe because it looked so interesting. It turned out delicious! A whole cup of orange zest is an extremely large amount, and I only had three oranges so I could only get about 2/3 of a cup. It did take a lot longer to cook on the stove than the recipe says. I think it was about 30 minutes altogether, not counting assembling the cake ingredients. The cake did turn out a bit crumbly, but it is so delicious warm out of the oven! I recommend it with a light powdered sugar vanilla glaze.
I was curious to use whole 1 cup of orange zest. this one was fairly easy to make but i'm not sure if the flavor is that great. It's not bad but not as moist/tasty as i wanted it to be.
Great bread recipe! Mild orange flavor, fantastic aroma, great consistency! My only change was adding an extra tablespoon of butter. I will make this again.
I was looking for an old-fashioned recipe when I came across this. Turned out perfect. I was worried there was not enough butter to make it moist but it was great. Would be nice with an orange drizzle or and fruity cream cheese spread.
Awesome recipe, i absolutely love it i also used lemon in place of orange zest and i am now experimenting using strawberry preserves. very universal i definitely recommend it. Thank you :)
I needed a moist flavorful recipe. Once I added a simple glaze (1/4 c butter, 2/3 c confectioners sugar and 1/3 c orange juice melted & mixed well) to the bread as it came out of the oven, this was wonderful!!!
Made exactly as written. The kitchen smelled wonderful as it was baking and could hardly wait until it was finished. Ate this with some hot orange spice tea for a nice change on a Sunday morning; we all enjoyed it very much. May try a little chocolate glaze next time. Thanks for sharing, Bob.
I made this recipe with homemade, previously prepared candied lemon peel instead of orange zest (lemons gifted by a very nice neighbor.) Baked it in two small loaf pans for 45 minutes, and added loritab123's glaze made with lemon juice. Bread was a beautiful yellow color, and absolutely delicious! Wish I could share a picture, but the bread disappeared too quickly!
