Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Tip: Plan on using two oranges to get the 2 tablespoons grated orange peel called for here.
  • Tip 2
    Tip: Freeze this tasty quick bread by wrapping it tightly in heavy-duty foil. Reheat in a 300 degree oven about 15 minutes.
  • Tip 3
    Tip: Most quick breads are removed from their pans to a wire rack. This produces a drier, crisper surface. If left in the pan, the bread would become steamed and soft.
  • Tip 4
    Tip: When grating orange peel, be sure to grate only the orange part of the skin. The white part, or pith, is very bitter.
