Review This Recipe
I made two batches of these for gifts. I baked them in a "mini" loaf pan which gave me eight small loaves, each equal to about one large muffin. The were the perfect size for gift baskets and tasted just great. I used cranberry juice in lieu of orange juice on one batch for a variation of flavor. It seemed to work fine.
