Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Soak minced orange peel in TB of water to rehydrate.
  3. In a small bowl lightly beat the egg, add orange peel, orange juice, vegetable oil, and pure vanilla extract.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until moist.

  7. Bake in preheated oven 50-60 minutes, until golden brown and springy to the touch.
  8. Remove from oven, cool in pan 8-10 minutes.
  9. Remove from pan(run a very thin knife around the outside edge of the bread, if you are concerned about the bread sticking).
  10. Let cool before completely slicing.
