User Rating 1 Star Rating (1 Review)


Quick bread recipe made with orange juice, orange peel, and walnuts or pecans.

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated orange peel
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt; stir with fork to mix. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or fork.

In a small bowl, beat egg slightly; stir in milk, orange juice and grated orange peel. Add to flour and shortening mixture, stirring only enough to moisten all ingredients. Fold in walnuts or pecans. Spoon mixture into greased 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan, spreading to corners. Leave a slight depression in center of loaf. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes. Bake orange bread in preheated 350° oven for 55 to 60 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes; turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Wrap and store orange bread overnight for easier slicing. Serve with softened cream cheese or flavored butter.

Really Dry, Member iamnotanumber1

Sadly this was very dry..I even upped the liquids, as the batter was really dry and floury...I think who ever contributed it, should re-measure their ingredients to balance it out. Too bad, as it seemed really easy to make. I am bummed as I wasted ingredients on it..and in these times..who can really afford to waste your money.
