Try this bread with orange marmalade! No problem with getting your daily dose of vitamin C.

Wow this is terrific. The orange flavor is fabulous and the bread has such a perfect texture for a quick bread. I made one loaf and it baked for 30 minutes and then we lost power for 3 days - I was so disappointed because it smelled so heavenly so as soon as power returned I made this again! Fabulous breakfast treat with just a light spread of butter on top. Made for the Bargain Basement tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift dry ingredients into a mixing bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender. Add milk, orange juice, and egg. Mix just enough to moisten dry ingredients. Add grated orange rind and chopped nuts.
  2. Pour into a greased loaf pan, spreading batter to corners.
  3. Bake at 350° for 55 to 60 minutes. Turn onto rack to cool. Best if made at least one day in advance.
