Yield

12 servings

Ingredients

1 cup grated orange zest
1/2 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/4 cup water
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup granulated (white) sugar
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 1/4 cups milk

Directions

Place the orange zest into a saucepan and add water to cover; bring to a boil and cook 5 minutes. Strain the zest through a mesh strainer and return to the saucepan along with 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup of water. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring constantly, until the water has evaporated. Allow to cool until lukewarm.

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl; set aside. Whisk the egg and 1 cup of sugar in a bowl. Stir in the butter, milk, and cooled orange zest until blended; stir in the flour mixture until just moistened then pour into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for 55 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire cooling rack.
