Orange Spice Bread
I took one of my pumpkin spice bread recipes and adapted it to make this bread. I love orange desserts and bought some oranges last week when they were on sale so what better to do with them then bake. Of course, they're good to eat too.
This bread has just enough spice and orange flavor and is very moist. The recipe goes together very quickly too so if you're looking for a quick bread to make this would be one. I would guess that it would freeze well also.
1 1/2 oranges, peel and all (make into puree)
1 Tbl water
1/2 cup sour cream
2 whole eggs
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 1/2 cups AP flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1 1/2 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray two loaf pans. You could also make these into muffins, large or small.
In blender put oranges which you cut into pieces and 1 TBL of water and puree.
Add this to a large bowl with the eggs, water, oil and sour cream, whisk until
well blended. In another bowl mid all the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix til blended, don't over mix. Add nuts.
Spread into loaf pans and bake for about 45-55 minutes until golden and toothpick inserted comes out clean.
You can put a cream cheese frosting on these loaves if you like or a sugar glaze, eat it plain or put some butter on it, just enjoy.
Thanks for taking time to stop by, have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the Time to Do All the Things You love.
