Orange Banana Nut Bread
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling
Makes2 loaves (12 slices each)
really nice flavors. Quick to mix up. I did not have nuts, so I added some chopped fresh cranberries, which turned out very nice
I reduced the sugar to one cup and increased the oil to 1/3 cup. I also replaced 1 cup of all purpose flour with whole wheat flour. Finally, since I didn't have any nuts, I used dried cranberries instead. Turned out nice and moist, and plenty sweet enough.
Addendum to previous review (17 May 2020): Following our tried-and-true family recipe for banana bread, I used light brown sugar in this one.
I always add 2 T of orange zest and a teaspoon of orange extract to get a true orange flavor.
Although a good banana bread recipe, we couldn't taste the orange at all. Will try again tomorrow after the flavors have settled.
I loved the flavor and texture combinations in this quick bread. With the addition of orange, it is especially nice for the holidays. The one thing I changed was the amont of oil: to me, the finished product seemed a bit dry so I increased the oil to 1/2 cup with good results. I also baked the bread the day before and, after cooling completely, wrapped the loaf in foil e By the next day, it was much more moist (just the way I like it). Don't skip the walnuts - they add great texture and flavor, I think!
This was really good! A very moist banana bread with a hint of orange. The recipe made two loaves, so I froze one for Christmas Day and shared the other. I did omit the walnuts, only because I didn't have any. It didn't affect the recipe at all - although I'm sure the walnuts would be great if added! I'll put this one away in my Christmas Baking File!
This is one of the best banana breads I have ever made. Super moist and very flavorful. Only had 1 cup of white sugar so added quarter cup light brown, recipe was very forgiving. Made 4 small loaves ,baked for 25 minutes, turned out great!Thank you,I will definitely make again.
This is the best Banana Bread Recipe thus far.....
An absolute 10 ! Have yet to find anyone who didn't like this - even used the nutritional facts for those on weight watchers to be able to figure their points. (Which is 4 points per slice.)
