Category: Fruit, Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 4 Oranges; Md
  • 1 c Water
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 4 c Unbleached Flour
  • 6 ts Baking Powder
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Butter Or Regular Margarine
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 2 Eggs; Lg
  • 2 c Milk


Thinly peel the oranges, using a vegetable peeler. Cut the orange rind
into thin slivers. (Reserve the oranges for another use, or eat them and
enjoy.) Combine the orange rind and 1 cup of water in a 2 quart saucepan
and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 15
minutes or until the rind is tender. Add the 1 cup of sugar and continue
cooking, uncovered, until the mixture is syrupy, about 15 minutes. Cool
to room temperature. Meanwhile, sift the flour, baking powder and salt
together in a bowl and set aside. Cream the butter and 1/2 cup of sugar
together until light and fluffy, using a electric mixer set on medium. Add
the eggs and blend well. Blend in the cooled orange rind mixture. Add
the dry ingredients alternately with the milk to the creamed mixture,
beating well after each addition. Pour the batter into 2 greased 9 X 5 X
3-inch loaf pans. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 50 minutes
or until a cake tester or wooden pick inserted in the center comes out
clean. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to
finish cooling. Wrap in aluminum foil and let stand overnight before
slicing. This bread slices better when it has cooled for 24 hours.
