If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Orange Walnut Bread (untested)

This recipe is written in Grammy's handwriting and dated February 1975. The only attribution are the initials "FJ". I wonder if this was a holiday recipe. Walnuts and oranges are good holiday flavors.

  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped dates
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons grated orange rind [aka "orange zest"]
  • 1 tablespoon flour

  1. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
  2. Combine orange juice, sugar, egg, and butter; mix well
  3. Gradually add wet mixture to flour mixture; stir well
  4. Combine remaining ingredients; stir into batter
  5. Turn into greased 8.5-inch by 4.5-inch by 2.5-inch loaf pan
  6. Bake in 350°F oven for 1 hour 15 minutes or until done

Makes 1 loaf
