Just another great Holiday recipe.
I'm going to add this to our Thanksgiving menu.
Here's what you'll need:
1 - 9" X 5" Loaf Pan brushed well with Pan Release Mix. (equal parts of Crisco, Vegetable Oil, Flour) I start with 1 C of each mixed in a jar and refrigerated. I always have it available for all of my baking needs.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
8 TBS Butter, room temperature
3/4 C Brown Sugar
1/2 C Molasses
1 TBS Orange Zest
2 C Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
1 C chopped Pecans
3/4 C Orange Juice
In a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer:
Beat Butter until creamy.
Add Brown Sugar and continue beating until creamy.
Add Egg and beat well.
Stir in Molasses and Zest by hand until well incorporated.
In a medium mixing bowl:
Mix well by hand
Add to the Butter mixture alternating each addition with Orange Juice. Begin and end with Flour.
Pour batter into the pan and bake for 55 minutes. A toothpick in the center should come out clean.
Remove pan to a cooling rack for 10 minutes.
Inver the loaf onto the rack and cool completely.
Peace in the Kitchen!
