Orange Bread  
orange bread or muffins

Orange Bread (or muffins)

2 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup orange juice
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon orange zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup melted butter
3 tablespoons sugar (This is for topping)
Preheat oven to 350°, Mix together dry ingredients. Mix wet separately: eggs, orange juice and butter, then add to dry ingredients until just combined. Don't over-mix (trust me, mixing until very smooth isn't good for muffins or quick breads--it should be a bit lumpy).

Pour into prepared muffin tins or a bread pan. I use a spray to grease mine or you can save wrappers from butter or margarine to make the process easier if you don't have a spray. Sprinkle the sugar on top before baking. Bake for 22-25 minutes (muffins) or 50-55 (bread pan) until you can insert a toothpick and it comes out w/o raw batter sticking to it.
