biscuit baking mix
grated orange zest
I just made a loaf this afternoon and have already eaten two pieces! I made a few changes. I did half dark brown sugar, half white just because I like brown sugar. I also added maybe a 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice and about the same amount of cinnamon. It smelled great while cooking and even awhile later when I went out of the house and came back, I could still smell it.
Was not happy with how this bread turned out. I should always remember that things that start with baking mix are never up to my standards. Had a funny flavor/aftertaste (which is common with things that have baking mix as a starter) and had to bake much longer than stated in recipe. Would definitely not make again.
The fresh orange flavor makes this a delightful snack bread for breakfast or get-togethers. It's also very easy to make.
This recipe was so easy and very moist. I have made several times and found it easy to make substitutions. I’ve added coconut, used pecans instead of almonds and 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white just to name a few. Great recipe, thanks for sharing
Quick, easy and tasty- full of orange flavor.
Great flavor. I used lemon rind, oj, and pulverized almonds. For some reason the very center of the loaf, from the top to about one inch down was pretty gooey though the rest was perfect. It could just be my oven. I lined my pan with parchment so it came out perfectly. I also didn't have the ready-made biscuit mix, so I made my own using a biscuit recipe on this site. Worked great though it did take a few extra minutes of prep putting those additional ingredients together.
Pretty good - I used fresh squeezed orange juice and fresh orange zest, added a tsp of vanilla extract and plumped the raisins in the microwave with a little extra vanilla. I also added a little ground flax meal and some whole wheat pastry flour, all purpose and baking powder instead of the baking mix. Awesome!
Great and easy recipe. Tastes great very light. It was very simple and quick. It does have a slight bitter taste from the orange, but a little sweetened orange, cranberry butter takes care of that. On my second batch I left out the raisins and almonds and added fresh chopped cranberries. YUM!
