Orange Bread Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

Orange Syrup Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice

Orange Glaze Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp orange extract


Orange Bread Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare a 9-inch by 5-inch loaf pan with a non-stick spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, granulated sugar, eggs, orange zest, vanilla extract, and oil. Stir until well blended.
  • Add the self-rising flour to your batter. Mix this until well combined.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Set aside to cool.

Orange Syrup Directions

  • You will prepare the orange syrup after the bread has cooled (at least 30 minutes).
  • Add the 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of orange juice to a saucepan and stir together.
  • Heat the mixture until it boils. Allow the mixture to boil for a minute or two until the sugar is dissolved. Then, remove the pan from heat.
  • Remove the orange bread from its pan and place it onto a cooling rack. Place wax paper underneath the cooling rack. Pour the orange syrup all over the top of the bread and let it soak in.

Orange Sweet Glaze Directions

  • Once your bread has completely cooled again, mix together the orange juice, powdered sugar, and orange extract until well combined, making a glaze.
  • Drizzle the icing all over the top of the bread.
