Yes, the Babes are celebrating oranges…..
While it’s incredibly tempting to make a political comment, considering both the color and the date of this post, I shall refrain.
This is about the bread not the (slaps fingers and hits backspace)…..
On to the good stuff: Fouace Nantaise.
We have a double Babe month….
Jamie, of Life’s a Feast, Bread Baking Babe, author of soon-to-be released cookbook titled ‘Oranges’, and former resident of Nantes was the inspiration for this recipe.
Elizabeth, of blog from OUR kitchen, Bread Baking Babe host kitchen for the month, and current resident of frozen Canada, decided oranges were the perfect antidote to frigid weather.
That and sneaking a taste of still warm bread.
Oranges are everywhere this time of year…..
Take advantage and try your hand at this lovely orange-scented bread.

Ah, yes Katie you make us look sooooo good … actually this bread is lovely no matter the flour,
Jam and coffee, I think is tradition but I loved it with a little goat cheese Brie!
Love this Katie! You always do such a nice round up of the breads!
Tanna is right. You do make us look good!
And I know what you mean about “orange” but I simply refuse to let current events across the border to hijack the connotation. Orange is a citrus fruit. Or a colour that is half-way between gold and red.
Tanna, I’m kind of a savory gal – always goat cheese. Besides, wine doesn’t go well with jam.
Karen, thanks – it’s always fun to read everyone’s stories.
Elizabeth, orange should never be used to describe a human – or an entity masquerading as one. You are right. It’s a lovely fruit – as they are all lovely breads.
