A delicious orange quick bread topped with a sweet orange glaze, this glazed mimosa bread is perfect for Mother's Day, Sunday brunch, or wedding showers.
I love spending time with my family on Mother's Day — and I love a good Mother's Day brunch.
There is just something about having the option to enjoy an omelette and toast or a sandwich and some pasta salad.
But the best part is the mimosas!
Mimosas are a class brunch cocktail made with orange juice and champagne.
