Orange Cream Cheese Bread Recipe

by Sheryl

This Orange cream cheese loaf is a pleasant Spring dessert made from fresh oranges and is made of cream cheese rather than butter. The loaf cake has a sweet orange glaze, then it is flavored with a fresh, squeezed orange juice and orange zest.¬†Usually, such recipes use butter, but instead, I use that cream cheese. The cream is so delicious and nutritious. It’s great to use in recipes like this I love to spread on bagels or banana bread at home, but it is great also. It’s easy to make this lovely cake. Taking time to arrange or make ingredients does not take much. There are several essential ingredients in the cake. It has a slightly orange flavor that gives the cake a fresh pulled orange jug and an orange peel.

I highly recommend the icing of this cake by placing it on a cooling rack with paper parchment. Sprinkle the glaze with more orange zest over the cake. Wait until you put in a cake stand, then discard the paper.
