This sunny, citrusy loaf is for early mornings. Specifically, it’s for Fridays. You see, it’s hard enough resisting treats at work on a normal day, but on Fridays I’m greeted by at least three or four flavors of sweet rolls waiting to be taste-tested. There’s always a cinnamon roll, a pecan-topped sticky bun, sometimes a chocolate roll, all with a knife sitting by them for cutting and sampling. And then there’s my favorite– a raspberry-jam-filled roll topped with a tangy orange glaze that I find irresistible. It whispers to me, I swear it does!

Well, this Raspberry Swirl Orange Loaf is my defense and my reward for resisting temptation. It’s a tantalizing indulgence in its own right. Tender and moist, sweet and fragrant, it’s a perfect pick-me-up for long work days. I brought slices of this loaf to work and it was quickly devoured by all. No one you serve this to will ever guess it’s grain free, dairy free and refined sugar free! It’s as good as (if not better than!) any decadent coffeehouse treat. This loaf will get gobbled up without so much as a crumb left behind!

The wonderful thing about using jam is you can enjoy the flavors of summer all year round. I know I’ll be baking up loaves of this in the winter to cut through the gray gloom!
