I love autumn dishes, and orange nut bread is one of my favorites! It makes the house smell so good, and it is perfect for breakfast or mid-afternoon snack with a creamy cup of coffee. Just put it in the microwave for 30 to 50 seconds to heat and them spread on a touch of real butter or orange marmalade. Delicious!
- 2 cups flour
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 beaten egg
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon backing powder
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup orange juice with pulp
- 1/4 cup melted shortening
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I usually put 3/4 cup or more, I love nuts!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix dry ingredients
Separately mix egg, orange and lemon juice and melted shortening
Add the two mixtures together and stir to mix well
Grease a loaf pan and press in dough
Cover and let stand for 20 minutes
Place in preheated oven and bake for one hour
Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes
Turn out on a cooking rack
You can serve hot or cold
I hope you and your family love this bread as much as we do!
Have a great day!
