Delicious smelling bread. It's moist with a sweet crust. Very tasty! Using fresh orange juice is time consuming.

It is a great recipe and easy to follow. I substituted the dates with dried cranberries and almonds, and everyone absolutely loved it!

Very delicious! I was confused by step 2's instruction to set aside 1 tbsp of zest - and do what with it? So I used the entire zest of one orange, and I used the juice of three fairly small navels. Skipped the nuts and used a bit more dates. It came out just perfect.

Loved it!! Just didn't understand why the 1/3 cup of boiling water, I just completed 1 cup with the orange juice and it was just as great. Will definitely be making again.

This is a good recipe and makes a big loaf. Easy to put together from basic pantry ingredients. Flavor and texture improve over a couple of days.
