Top bread with a quick glaze made with powdered sugar, orange juice, vanilla and almond extract. Great for breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up! #quickbread #sweetbread
Here is another sweet bread recipe that makes a great homemade gift. The best part about this bread is the glaze on top of it. O-M-G! It is SOOOOO good. It is made with orange juice. It really gives this bread a whole new level of flavor. I would love to slice off the top hump of the bread and just eat that all by myself. I don’t, but I want to.
This recipe makes two loaves. I always give one away. This bread is dangerous in our house. We have absolutely no self-control when it is around. This makes a great hostess gift or easy gift for a teacher, neighbor, co-worker or friend. I promise they will love it!
