Baking for the Sale

June 6th, 2019 at 08:18 am

Once a year my church does an annual rummage sale. There is also a bake sale. Yesterday I spent some time in kitchen baking some small loaves of sweet breads and two 7 x 7 pans of carrot cake. I actually did 3 carrot cake, but one I kept for DH. I haven't made carrot cake for awhile so he was very pleased and when he got home from walking, he wanted a piece right then. I'm glad because I wanted to make sure it was good enough to donate.

A month or so ago we had some clementines that weren't moldy, but had started to get a little shriveled. I decided to search for a recipe to make orange bread. I figured there was one out there and there was. I tried and DH loved it. Hopefully the folks at the sale will feel the same way since I made some for the sale.

Here's the recipe in case you are interested:

Orange loaf

1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 T orange zest
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
2 cups flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt

Cream together butter, sugar, eggs, zest and juice. Add dry ingredients slowly until mixed. Add to greased pans and bake at 350 degrees until toothpick comes out clean. Brush with glaze after you take from oven.

I made the small pans and started checking them after 20 minutes. I think a bigger loaf is closer to 40, depending on humidity and oven temp.

Glaze: 1/2 cup orange juice and 1/4 to 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Blend together and brush on top of warm bread.
