Banana Orange Bread

Pin It
I'll be honest, most of the time I skip breakfast. I know it's the most important meal and all that, but I'm just not hungry first thing in the morning and I am too tired to want to make breakfast.
This bread is so good and has such a bright flavor, and if you make it the night before it's a quick thing to grab in those groggy hours after waking.
With or without the glaze, this bread was a huge hit in our house!

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice

Yummm! I've never added citrus to banana bread, but I love just about everything orange, so this sounds like a keeper. I'm putting it in my recipe files for sure. Thanks for sharing it!

That sounds so fresh and yummy. I have had banana bread and have had orange cake but never blended the two. I wished you have saved me a piece:) Ok, I can make it since you shared the recipe. Just popping in to let you know that Freedom Fridays is up and running, I would so love it if you would link up again this week. Looking forward to see you there!

This bread looks great. I like how you can make it the night before. I usually don't eat breakfast because I don't feel like making anything. Thanks for sharing at Showcase Your Talent Thursday!
