How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease (or spray with nonstick cooking spray) one 8 x 4-inch loaf pan.
  • If greasing pan, dust with flour and tap out excess.
  • On a cutting board or plate, remove peel from orange.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat half-and-half over high heat just until it bubbles around the edge of pan.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Stir in orange peel and instant coffee or espresso powder.
  • Let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Discard peel.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Set this mixture aside.
  • Stir together coffee mixture, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a separate small mixing bowl.
  • Make a "well" in the center of the flour mixture.
  • Add the coffee mixture all-at-once to the well, tossing with a fork just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  • (Do not over-mix.)
  • Spoon batter into prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean--approximately 60 to 65 minutes.
  • Carefully remove from oven and place on hot pad on counter top to cool slightly.
  • Loosen loaf by running spatula or knife around sides of pan.
  • Turn loaf out onto baking rack to cool.
