Orange Bread Recipe

Yields1 Serving

If you love oranges, wait until you taste this bread.  It is packed with orange flavor from orange juice and orange rind.  It’s so loaded with orange flavor the color of the bread is actually orange.  You can make this bread from start to finish in the bread machine, so you won’t need to fuss with an oven after a dough cycle in the machine like some bread recipes require.  This recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of orange rind which could leave you with 3 to 4 oranges with the skin removed.  Rather than throw them out, see if you can squeeze out some of the juice and supplement any shortage with orange juice from the fridge. 

 1 cup of orange juice + ¼ cup of water at 110 degrees Fahrenheit/43 degrees Celsius
 ¼ cup of sugar
 1 teaspoon of salt
 1 tablespoon of melted butter
 2 tablespoons of orange zest
 1 egg
 3 ½ cups of bread flour
 2 ½ teaspoons of bread machine yeast or active dry yeast

Place the ingredients into the bread pan in the order indicated in the ingredient section.


Select the white bread setting, 1.5-pound loaf and medium crust. Start and when done, remove the loaf from the pan and let rest for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Slice and serve.
