Citrus Loaf

I love citrus. This citrus loaf is perfect for spring, it’s so fresh with a burst of orange. I added a light glaze but you could always leave it as is. This loaf is delicious and leaves your house smelling divine.

This citrus loaf is slightly sweet with fresh, subtle citrus flavour from  orange zest. In this recipe, I used greek yogurt which added extra moisture and protein.  This loaf would make a perfect addition to Easter brunch and/or snack with a cup of tea. Every time I make this citrus loaf it disappears within days.
