Orange Zesty Crumble Bread

Breakfast, Recipes, Sweet Bread


This is a very tasty breakfast bread. I adapted this one from my cinnamon crumble bananna bread, and it turned out delicious! You can skip the crumble and go with just the glaze, but i love the texture and flavor of the crumble as a breakfast. It’s like eating granola on top…it’s tasty! The zesty flavor in this bread is really yummy. I hope you enjoy! 🙂
