This wonderful recipe is simply amazing. I was blown away by how good it was.
I think Carson is going to add this to his holiday line up when he does his Christmas
baking! The dates, walnuts, orange rind, and vanilla all come together to complement
each other in an sweet blend of flavors. You will not be able to stop with just one slice
of this bread, so go ahead have another, we won't tell. :)
Orange Nut Bread 2 c Flour 1 tsp Baking powder 1/2 tsp Baking soda 1/2 tsp Salt 3/4 c Orange juice 1 tsp. Vanilla 1 c Sugar 1 lg Egg, slightly beaten 2 tblsp. Melted butter 3/4 c Chopped Dates 3/4 c Walnuts, chopped 1 1/2 ts Orange zest (Zest is grated orange rind.) 1 tblsp. Flour
Sift together into a large bowl the first 5 ingredients. In a small bowl, combine the juice,vanilla, sugar, egg, and butter; gradually add to the flour mixture, stirring well. In that small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; stir into the batter. Pour into a greased loaf pan (approx. 8 1/2"x4"x3"). Bake in a 350 degree oven about 1 hour or until brown. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack in pan for about 10 mins.
Remove from pan and cool completely on rack. Makes 1 loaf -- about 10 servings.
