    Followed the recipe adding a tsp of mixed spice to the mix. Has turned out just perfect and smells lush... Can't wait to pop some in the toaster tomorrow morning. ...We did pop it in the toaster and we could have ate the whole loaf!  -  16 Mar 2017


    My wife and kids think this is a great bread. We really enjoy the flavor. I experimented and substituted honey for the sugar. It was great! The conversion for the yeast is .25 oz. = 2-1/4 tsp.  -  23 Apr 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really liked this. Made some changes...used 1 1/4 cups orange juice (no water) fresh squeezed; used canola oil instead of margarine; used 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 2 cups all-purpose flour; and 1/4 cup honey instead of sugar. There was no light orange color -- but I suspect the whole wheat flour masked it. Lightly tangy, a hint of orange, made the best french toast I've ever had. Thanks for the recipe!  -  06 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
