Super-soft and studded with crunchy walnuts, this citrus-y yeast bread will make your mornings 10x sweeter! Top slices with lots of orange marmalade and butter.
I have a borderline-unhealthy obsession with just-baked, warm-from-the-oven homemade bread.
As in, I end up eating waaaaay too much of it in one sitting.
Don’t send help.
So a few weeks back, Red Star Yeast contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in doing a sponsored recipe post for them. Clearly, I jumped at the opportunity. I ADORE baking with Red Star Yeast and refuse to bake with any other brand, simply because RSY is SO reliable and trustworthy in the baking department.
For any beginning yeast bread-maker or even an expert you must check out their Facebook and/or Pinterest pages. They have ah-MAZING tips and recipes for any yeast-er.
Is that even a word? It is here. Whatevs. Movin’ on….
This bread here? It’s my new favorite bread to date. It’s unbelievably soft and chewy inside, chock-fulla’ toasty walnuts, perfectly flavored with sweet, citrus-y orange, and did I mention it is so so fluffy inside?
Sorry, I have an obsession with anything fluffy.
Also, anything that’s orange-flavored automatically puts me in a good mood. Orange and walnuts? Combo made in heaven. I was walking on cloud 9 all day after chowing down on about half of this entire loaf in one sitting.
KIDDING. I so ate the entire loaf by myself. 😉
That was a pretty good day….
This bread is amazing just on it’s own, warm from the oven, but let me tell you that it’s the BEST toasted with some butter and extra marmalade slathered on top. Your morning coffee is BEGGING for a companion as amazing as this bread alongside it for breakfast.
You won’t be able to have just one slice though, I guarantee it. Better have 3 just to be on the safe side. 😉
Immediately after I was done taking photos, somehow two slices of this bread just disappeared, shall we say….I wish my baked goods would stop doing that. It’s annoying…
Homemade bread is probably the #1 reason I can never stick to a diet…
Self-control doesn’t stand a chance with delicious-ness like this at only an arm’s reach away. 😀
Monday just requires something as cheery and citrus-y as this bread. Run-don’t-walk over to Red Star Yeast for the recipe!
This post was sponsored by Red Star Yeast and I have been compensated, however all opinions are 100% my own.

Mmm….I love quick breads like this! I have never made an orange version. What a great breakfast!
Thanks Kelly! This bread has quickly become my fav breakfasts. 🙂
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says
I am obsessed with eating warm bread out of the oven too, Sarah! And after the bread has cooled, I always pop it back into the microwave. I absolutely love the flavors in this bread! I’ve never tried an orange kind before, but it looks amazing. Definitely pinning for the future!
Warm bread is the BEST, isn’t it, Gayle?! You just can’t beat it. 😉 Thanks for pinning, girl!
Natalie @ Tastes Lovely says
This orange walnut bread sounds delicious! I love red star yeast too. So reliable! Bread rises perfectly every time. Love all the orange marmalade you put on this. Yum!
Thanks, Natalie! And yes! Isn’t RSY the best?!
Sherri@The Well Floured Kitchen says
Love orange and nuts together. This looks delicious!
They’re the best combo ever! 😉 Thanks Sherri!
If I don’t have marmalade, can I use any jam?
You probably could, however, the flavor of the bread would definitely be different. 🙂

Ahhh this bread looks ah-mazing! I, too, have a problem limiting myself to half the loaf. If my husband is home, it will usually curb my frantic eating of the entire loaf just from the shame! Not that he actually cares…this is a judgement free zone! Plus it’s totally genetic. Just saying.
Pinned! I CANNOT wait to try this bread!
Hahaha totally loving that “judgement free zone” thing you got going on there, Lindsey! I need one of those. My family always gives me dirty looks when I eat the last few pieces of this bread. LOL! Thanks for pinning, girl! 😉
Lindsey @ American Heritage Cooking says
haha! Oh I didn’t say I didn’t get dirty looks if I don’t share the last piece…that’s sacred! 🙂
Love the combination of orange and walnut in this bread. I don’t blame you for eating most of it, I totally would have too!
Annie @Maebells says
I really love sweet breads! All kinds! I love the idea of orange walnut sounds fantastic!
Thanks, Annie! And sweet breads are the best! 😉
Who could resist homemade bread?! Only a serial killer. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
You can just save a HUMUNGO slice of this for me. K thanks.
Hahaha! Hmm I donno….I think even a serial killer could turn weak in the knees over fresh bread. LOL. 😀
I am a sucker for warm homemade bread! Yours looks amazing! Love the combination of orange and walnut – it wouldn’t last long around here that’s for sure 🙂
Thanks you Kelly! And this bread doesn’t even last the day in this house! 🙂
I’m so impressed that you make your own bread!! For some reason it seems complicated and like a huge feat to me. I think I gotta get into the kitchen and start baking bread though, because there isn’t much that sounds better than warm baked bread!
I used to be so scared to make homemade bread too, Izzy! but I promise that practice definitely makes perfect. You’ll get the hang of it in no time and then you’ll wonder why you ever waited so long to try it! 🙂 And I agree—NOTHING beats warm, homemade bread!
Hi Sarah, found you via Maebells! I also LOVE bread as soon as it comes out of the oven! Whole grain with butter…yum. My favorite is Banana Bread. I eat the top 😉 as soon as it comes outta the oven…so good. Can’t wait to try this one! Oh, and gonna make the Almond Joy Granola as we’ll!
You’ll have to let me know how this bread and the granola turns out for you, Carla! Thanks for stopping by, friend! 🙂
Homemade bread is the best! Love the combination of orange and walnut. I’d eat piece after piece too 🙂

Visiting from Show Stopper Saturday link party. This bread sounds delicious, I love the sound of orange and walnuts together. I co-host Sweet and Savoury Sunday and would love for you to stop by and share this and other recipes with us when the party goes live tomorrow. Have a great day!
Thanks for the invite, Laura! I’ll hop over there right now to link up. 🙂
Your orange walnut bread looks irresistibly good! I’m off to peek at the recipe…Now I’ve seen that the magic ingredient is marmalade I will have to try it!
Thanks so much, Julia! You’ll have to let me know how this bread turns out for you! 🙂
