I love quick breads. They’re so universally loved. This bread loaf will help you use up some of that marmalade in the fridge too.
Great for breakfast with a lovely cup of coffee, as a light dessert in the evening, or even a nice mid-day snack with a cup of tea.
This bread loaf recipe makes a great homemade gift to give to family, friends, and neighbors. Everyone will love it. It also makes a nice housewarming gift.
Store-bought or homemade marmalade
This Orange Marmalade Bread can easily be made with a store-bought orange marmalade. Buy a nice good quality jar of marmalade if you go this route. Avoid those more ones that are more like jelly, just sugar and water, and instead choose one that’s fruit preserves filled with some nice chunky orange bits.
Make your own homemade marmalade
Making your own is fun and rewarding, and here are a few recipes you may want to try:
Easy Orange Marmalade from The Suburban Soapbox
Orange lemon marmalade from Easy Peasy Creative
The recipe calls for vegetable oil, really any oil that’s light in flavor will work here. Light olive oil, canola oil, grapeseed oil, or vegetable oil will all be great.
I store my whole wheat flour in my refrigerator so it will keep longer. I highly recommend that you do as well. If you open your whole wheat flour and it smells off or metallic-y, it’s probably gone bad, as whole wheat will go rancid rather quickly if stored at room temperature. Be sure to give it the sniff test before using it.
