Cinnamon-Orange Swirl Bread Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2012
Positively one of the best quick bread recipes I've ever made. Orange and cinnamon flavors are a perfect match, the bread is moist, and superbly delicious! I did add 1/2 teaspoon orange oil in addition to the vanilla. The only small problem seems to be when cutting through the batter to swirl, the batter sticks to the knife even after spraying the knife with non-stick spray. The consistency of the batter is very thick which seems to cause this problem. I will definitely continue to make this recipe even with the batter sticking to the knife. If anyone has suggestions about the swirling process, it would be appreciated. Thanks Nancy for sharing your prize-winning recipe with us.

What wonderful, moist orange bread! I took some of the other reviewers' suggestions and substituted a quarter of the white sugar (in the batter) for brown sugar and used only brown sugar in the middle/topping mix. I also used the extra orange peel in the bread and took half of the peeled orange, put it in the food processor and added that to the bread. Oh, and I used butter since I didn't have butter flavored shortening. Mini chocolate chips might be good in this bread too!

Absolutely delicious! I tweaked it alittle bit - I put half an orange (peeled) into my food processor and chopped it until it was basically smooth, then added it to the batter. Also, wherever the recipe called for white sugar, I used half white sugar and half light brown sugar. Fantastic! I made a loaf yesterday and today it's almost gone.

Fabulous orange bread! I can see why this took second place at a state fair - it's definitely a prize winning recipe. I used butter instead of butter flavored shortening and opted for reduced fat sour cream. To heighten the orange flavor I added 1/4 cup of orange juice, some chopped fresh orange segments and 2 Tbsp. of orange zest along with the rest of the ingredients. For the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar I used brown sugar and didn't add any additional orange zest. For the topping I added a bit of butter and rolled oats to what remained of the sugar mixture. I baked it at 350 for about 55 minutes. It smelled great and tasted even better. It was bursting with citurs flavor - a definite keeper!

Awesome bread, everytime I make it my kids devour it. Really need it to make more than 1 loaf! I did add one tablespoon fresh OJ to it for a more orange flavor, but otherwise stuck to the recipe and it was divine!

This was great! I modified it a bit by adding about 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts, a dash of cinnamon and one orange's worth of grated rind to the batter, and then baking as noted. The only thing I'd do differently next time would be to add a few dollops of butter to the top cinnamon sugar mixture to make a truer streusel, as some of the cinnamon sugar did not "melt" into the the top and stayed powdery once baked. I also love that this makes only one loaf; perfect to make on Friday to enjoy during weekend breakfasts, but not so much that you ruin your breakfast diet for the following week! Great warmed with cream cheese on top too! I'll definitely make again!

Delicious. I think 55-60 minutes is too long so next time I will cook for 50. Really tasty treat.
