  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1 c. freshly-squeezed Sunkist® orange juice either Cara Cara or Blood Orange
  • 1/2 c. butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. orange zest
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

Glaze, Optional

  • 1 tbsp. freshly-squeezed Sunkist® orange juice
  • 1/3 c. powdered sugar


Directions, Bread

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grease a 9 inch loaf pan (or grease two smaller loaf pans, which is what I did). Tip: since I baked four at one time, I placed the loaf pans onto a baking sheet for ease of grabbing.
  • Stir and combine flour, salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix freshly-squeezed Sunkist® orange juice, melted butter, sugar, orange zest, and vanilla extract until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time. Combine with dry ingredients and mix until well-incorporated.
  • Pour batter into the well-greased loaf pan(s).
  • Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes; check doneness with a toothpick. If toothpick comes out of the bread clean, it is done. If it comes out unclean, allow the bread to bake for a couple more minutes.
  • Allow to cool, slice, serve, and enjoy!

Directions, Optional Glaze

  • Mix powdered sugar and freshly-squeezed Sunkist® orange juice; distribute over bread.
