Orange Nut Bread
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
2 cups orange juice
2 tablespoons yogurt
2 tablespoons half and half
1/2 cup butter
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/4 cup white sugar mixed with 1 tbsp orange juice (optional-- add lemon zest or orange peel -- I didn't do this)
DirectionsIt was pretty good, especially on a cool cloudy day before a home football game. You can see that the sugar topping gives the bread a crunchy surface that we like. And anything tastes better with miniature chocolate chips in it ;-).
- Combine softened butter, sugar and eggs.
- Add other ingredients, lastly mix in oatmeal and chocolate chips. Sprinkle sugar topping over the top.
- Pour into 2 well greased loaf pans. Cover and allow to sit for 20 minutes (I didn't actually do this).
- Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
