- 2 fresh oranges shopping list
- 1 cup of raisins shopping list
- 2 cups of sugar shopping list
- 2 cups of buttermilk shopping list
- 1 (scant) cup of butter shopping list
- 4 eggs shopping list
- 2 teaspoons of salt shopping list
- 2 teaspoons of baking soda shopping list
- 4 cups of flour shopping list
- 1 cup of sugar shopping list
- fresh orange juice shopping list
How to make it
- Butter and flour 2 loaf pans.
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Cut the oranges in half and squeeze the juice from all of them. Save the juice. Mix one cup of sugar with juice and set aside.
- Grind the rinds from the two oranges and the 1 cup of raisins. Set aside.
- Sift the flour together with the salt and baking soda and set aside.
- Cream together the butter and 2 cups of sugar, then add the eggs and then the ground orange-raisin mixture.
- Gradually blend in the flour and the milk to the orange mixture.
- Pour into the loaf pans and bake for 45 minutes or until the loaves test done.
- Remove the loaves from the oven and immediately pour the orange juice with sugar over the tops of each loaf.
- Let the bread mellow for a day before cutting.
- NOTES- As I mentioned, this is an old recipe and food processors weren't invented yet. I have a "grinder" that I used for the orange rinds and raisins. I don't know how a modern food processor would work on this.
- NOTES2-The recipe didn't mention the type of oranges to use. I used oranges with "thinner" peels, they had less of the white pith. Nor did it mention size of oranges. Oranges vary greatly in size. I used what I considered to be "medium" oranges. I think this recipe is very forgiving in that respect and it depends on how orangey you like things.
