Citrus Sweet Bread

Citrus Sweet Bread

Yep, I used a Bread Maker! I mean, what’s easier than throwing ingredients into a pan, setting the timer, and in four hours you have delicious homemade bread?! We’ve had this machine for years and I have no idea why we do not use it more often!  I must admit though, there is a secret ingredient in this recipe! :) It was that extra kick that gave this bread the strong citrusy flavor while being incredibly good for you. What is it you ask? Citrus Fresh Essential Oil by Young Living! :) I’m a huge Essential Oils fan; I throw it in anything from rice to pasta, from drinking water to baked goods! If you do not have Citrus Fresh Essential Oil, you may also use a few teaspoons of fresh Orange Juice!  Please enjoy this delicious bread as snack, for breakfast, or even with your dinner! :)
