Easy Orange and Walnut Bread


2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 orange (rind and juice)
2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a medium sized loaf tin. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.

Wash and grate the orange zest into a large bowl. Squeeze the orange juice over the zest. Add 1 cup of boiling water and mix. Add the melted butter or margarine, sugar, beaten egg and vanilla to the bowl and mix together.

Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients and lightly mix (take care not to over mix). Gently fold in the chopped walnuts and transfer to baking pan. Bake at 350F for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour or until baked through.
