Sourdough Orange-Cinnamon Ripple Bread

I had to feed my starter again and was determined to make something a little different. Sourdough Orange-Cinnamon Ripple Bread is the result. It's similar to a cinnamon quick bread but full of yeasty taste and more like a slightly sweet bread than a cake. The ripple bread is easy to mix up in the morning and forget until the evening when it should be ready to go in the oven--no kneading required. Orange zest gives the bread extra tang, and cinnamon, sugar, and ground walnuts make the ripple and topping sweet but not overly so. The bread is great sliced and popped into the toaster for a warm breakfast or tea treat.
