Orange Bread with a fresh orange glaze on top is your new favorite breakfast bread. It’s simple to make and tastes yummy.
Not only do I like to make breads for my family, but this is a great treat to take over to a friend who has maybe just had a new baby or grieving. It’s good for a new neighbor gift, too.
You may want to consider making two batches of this while you’re at it because it goes really fast!
How To Make It
First, you’ll whisk together your wet ingredients and dry ingredients in separate bowls, minus the coconut oil. Then, combine the two bowls together and lastly add in your coconut oil.
Quick Tip: Be sure to always use real vanilla and not the imitation version. It’s easy to spot, just look for the word ‘pure’ on the bottle.
The yummy glaze on top is a simple combination of powdered sugar, fresh squeezed orange juice and orange zest. Pour it over your bread after it has slightly cooled and enjoy!
Serving this warm is the very best way to eat it, but it tastes great the next day, too.
