Make this Easy and Delicious Glazed Orange Bread

This Glazed Orange Bread is infused with seasonal citrus and then topped with a sweet orange glaze. It really is amazing. One of my favourite¬†fruits is oranges and right now, they’re in season. Especially temple oranges or you can always opt for navel oranges too. This bread is baked to perfection and believe me, it’s so good!

The best part about this bread is that it is great for any season. For example, we enjoy baked pumpkin spice donuts during the fall. Right now though, it is incredibly cold. So, baking up this glazed orange bread and enjoying with a warm cup of coffee is heaven. I totally see myself bringing this recipe out for brunch during the spring or summer too.

Read on for the step by step recipe and to make your very own glazed orange bread! Can we say, yum?

Use that Seasonal Citrus

There really is nothing like enjoying a good bread. This one happens to fall into that category. I think what set it over the top is the two different types of glaze. It makes it really moist and full of zest. I also swear by adding sour cream, it is what makes the crust so good. Not dry but, just perfect!
