Orange Bread

This recipe comes from the book titled "Just Deserts and Other Treats for Kids to Make," by Marilyn Linton.

1/3 cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
rind of 1 orange, grated
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup orange juice

1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup orange juice

Heat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a loaf pan. In a large bown cream the butter and sugar. Stir in the orange rind and beat in the eggs one by one with a wire whisk or wooden spoon. Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder into antoher bowl. Mix the dry ingredients and the orange juice into the egg mixture bit by bit. For best results, begin and end with the dry ingedients. Pour the batter into a loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
For the glaze:
Put the sugar and orange juice into a small saucepan and cook, stirring, over low heat until the sugar dissolves and the glaze is hot. Pour the orange glaze over the loaf while it is still hot or warm. Allow it to cool before removing from the pan and slicing. Makes one loaf.
