Orange Bread

This Orange Bread is delicious all by itself or spread with Cream Cheese or Peanut Butter.

Quick breads are generally easy to make. This one requires cutting the Flour into the Shortening which is an extra step. The loaf is worth the bit of extra work.

Orange Bread

4 cups Flour
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Shortening
2 Eggs
1 cup Milk
1 cup Candied Orange Peel
1/3 cup Syrup from Orange Peel

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together Flour, Baking Powder, Salt and Sugar. Cut the Shortening into the Flour mixture. Beat Eggs thoroughly and add Milk to them. Combine with Flour mixture and stir in candied Peel and Syrup. Pour into a loaf pan and bake 45 minutes.
