until creamy (1 to 2 minutes).
Add eggs; continue beating until well mixed (1 to 2
minutes). Add light sour cream, grated orange peel and
orange extract. Continue beating; scraping bowl often,
until creamy (about 1 minute). Add flour, baking
powder, salt and baking soda. Continue beating,
scraping bowl often until just mixed (about 1 minute).

chopped pistachios. Spoon batter into a greased 9" x
5" x 3" loaf pan. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until

crust, do not glaze immediately. Wrap loaf in plastic
wrap; refrigerate overnight; then prepare glaze and
drizzle over bread.
