Taste the tropics with a slice of Orange Spice Banana Bread
With spring and Easter right around the corner, a lot of folks are getting the itch to bake it up in the kitchen; this recipe Orange Spice Banana Bread is one you definitely want to create at home, and I’m happy to tell you why!
Making Orange Spice Banana bread follows the classic quick bread method of mixing wet and dry ingredients separately before mixing them together to form the batter. Be careful not to over-mix, or your bread won’t rise up or be as fluffy as it could be.
I love this amazing tasting Orange Spice Banana Bread because it elevates regular banana bread by incorporating additional tropical flavor hints that enhance, not overpower, simple banana bread. After all, bananas are a tropical fruit as well, so the flavor combinations in this bread are outstanding!
Then the batter is gently baked in a 350 degree oven for almost an hour to ensure that the crust doesn’t burn, but the interior is properly cooked without loosing too much moisture.
While the bread is cooling, mix together a simple glaze of powdered sugar and freshly squeezed orange juice. I love the glaze because it gives this bread a dessert-y/snack type bread that is just sooo delicious! This bread would be so lovely for a spring picnic, book club, tea time, or as a gift to celebrate the coming of spring!
I love this bread and I know you will too- so bake it up and leave me a comment below- and don’t forget to rate the recipe!Print
