Quick Glazed Orange Bread is the treat you’ve been looking for! I made it again for my kids this weekend and then decided you might all want to make it as a treat for your kids. Or your significant other. Or make it for yourself. (what a gift!)
But if you’re making it for yourself, you may want to have someone else hide half of it where you can’t find it so you don’t eat all of it in one sitting. Or do eat all of it in one sitting. Trust me, we won’t judge.
After all, after you taste it, we know you’ll want to.
Now’s the time we have to tell you that we are being compensated by Queen Creek Olive Mill for this post. But really, you know us well enough by now to know that all opinions are completely our own. And we sure wouldn’t tell you about any products we didn’t absolutely love. We’re just not that kind of girls. We’ve used these olive oils long before we created a blog. So now that that’s out of the way, we’ll carry on.
Back to the Quick Glazed Orange Bread.
We used Queen Creek Olive Mill’s blood orange olive oil to make this bread even better. Could you use any old olive oil? Sure, I guess you could, but I’m not sure why you’d want to. If you haven’t tried Queen Creek Olive Mill’s olive oils yet, what are you waiting for? They ship right to your door (and thank goodness for that). And if you’re heading to Arizona this winter (and I know so many of us are), head down to this family owned Olive Mill just south of Phoenix, and check out their super awesome store/restaurant/photographer’s dream/olive mill.
I can’t wait-I’ll be back there in April! (I’m already making my wish list)
Oh yeah, back to the bread. I named this bread “Quick” because it’s both quick to make and even quicker to disappear. In fact, my 6 year old asked no less than 6 times while the bread was cooling when he could eat it. He has declared more times than I can count that this is his favorite bread. I won’t tell you how many times he asked for seconds (spoiler alert, the number is high).
I actually put aside a piece so I could have it for breakfast the next morning (good thing) because there is nothing like this Quick Glazed Orange Bread with a cup of tea (or coffee if you prefer). In fact you may want to consider making it for your loved one for breakfast in bed (hint hint if my husband is reading this).
After all I think there is one of the “breakfast in bed” holidays coming up…
Bonus, this Quick Glazed Orange Bread is made quickly and easily in a stand mixer. Don’t have a stand mixer? No worries, use a hand mixer. No hand mixer? Even better, use your arm strength to mix by hand-see, now you don’t have to go to the gym today. Don’t say we never did anything for you.
Quick Glazed Orange Bread
Fragrant bread with a cake like texture, this will quickly become a family favorite!
- 1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
- 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 whole eggs
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 cup Queen Creek Olive Mill Blood Orange Olive Oil
- 2 Tablespoons orange zest
- 1/4 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed), divided
- 1/2 cup powered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 °F
Prepare a loaf pan with cooking spray or additional olive oil.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment to beat sugar and eggs.
Add the yogurt, orange zest and 2 Tablespoons of orange juice and after combined, slowly stream the olive oil into the mixture.
Add the dry ingredients to the mixer and mix until just combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, and bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle.
Cool on a baking rack for 20 minutes
To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar and the remaining 2 Tablespoons of orange juice in a small bowl, mixing until smooth.
Top the cooled bread with the glaze and slice into 8 servings. Watch them disappear!
I generally use Fage, full fat yogurt. (you could substitute a lower fat version if desired).
