Orange Walnut Bread

Doesn't this bread just scream FALL? One of my dear Aunt's sent the recipe to me after she tasted some that a friend had made and loved it, so she wanted to share with me. I whipped a batch up and couldn't believe I had never tasted anything like it before. I am a quick bread fanatic anyway...so this bread was right up my alley! This Orange Walnut Bread has the perfect hint of orange to make your taste buds sing! It's full of nuts (which I love) and everything that makes a quick bread perfect! I thoroughly enjoyed every last bite! Thanks Aunt Jo for sharing!

Orange Walnut Bread

3 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
2 c. walnuts, chopped
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. melted butter
1 c. orange juice
4 T. orange zest
4 T. water

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl; set aside. Blend eggs, butter, orange juice, orange zest and water in a small bowl. Stir into flour mixture just until blended. Fold in walnuts. Spoon batter into TWO greased and floured loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until done *MINE only took about 40-45 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cover and cool completely on a wire rack. Slice and serve ( I like to eat mine with a bit of butter spread over it...........mmmmmmmmmmmmm!).
