Orange Chocolate Chip Bread – Orange & Chocolate combine for a flavorful & delicious quick bread.
I originally make this bread to take to my and Jamie’s MOPS (Mother of Preschoolers) group and it smelled so good while it was baking that I joked with Jamie that the ladies at MOPS didn’t really need the bread!
I sneaked a few bites while I taking pictures and I was even more convinced that maybe the whole loaf should just stay at my house. But of course, I wasn’t going to be that selfish! And then the next morning came and I ran off to MOPS and COMPLETELY FORGOT the orange chocolate chip bread on the counter. And since MOPS is a half-hour away from my house, I ended up bringing donut holes & muffins from the store!!
So my MOPS ladies can not vouch for how good this bread is but let me tell you it’s delicious!! And don’t worry I didn’t eat the entire loaf by myself, I did share with my kids and my mom!
