    • Instead of the zest and the juice I used 200 grs of left over pulp after juicing some oranges Turned out a treat.

    • Made this twice, delicious. I did break up some giant white chocolate buttons into the mix just before baking - about 20 buttons. Absolutely delicious and a great hit with my family.

    • Big success with my family, especially when I added the lightest chocolate chips I could find ... the loaf converted well to Canadian ingredients...we also added a dash of orange extract.

    • I added 2 tbsp of orange marmalade. That gave an extra tanginess to the loaf.
