Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling

Makes

1 loaf

My mother made this often when I was growing up. Now I make it for my husband and two girls. The slightly tangy glaze complements the moist bread.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons orange juice

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add yogurt, orange juice and zest. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture.
  2. Pour into a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cover loosely with foil if top browns to quickly. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack to cool completely.
  3. For glaze, combine confectioners' sugar and enough orange juice to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over cooled bread.
