Orange Bread

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min.


3 mini loaves

"This recipe from my grandma is an oldie but a goodie," promises Sue Gronholz from Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. "The peel of an orange (not the juice) provides the sunny flavor in these nut-studded loaves. Slices are especially yummy spread with cream cheese."


  • 1 large navel orange
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts


  1. Peel orange (save fruit for another use). Place the peel in a small saucepan and cover with water; cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Drain. Cover peel again with water and cook for 3 minutes; drain. Finely chop peel; set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine egg and milk; stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Fold in nuts and orange peel. Pour batter into three greased and floured 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to a wire rack.
