Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Quick breads can be made in large or small loaf pans. Wrap these moist and buttery breads in colored plastic food wrap for perfect gifts.
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 5 mini (5 3/4x3-inch) loaf pans. Set aside.
Combine sugar and 1 cup butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs; continue beating until well mixed. Add sour cream, orange juice and orange zest; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Beat until well mixed. Gently stir in nuts.
Divide batter evenly among prepared pans. Bake 35-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, combine 1/2 cup butter, powdered sugar and marmalade in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.

For those who like more flavor, use orange oil in addition to the extract and also about a teaspoon of vanilla extract. The vanilla will boost the orange flavor.

I'm always making nut breads and truly, this one is exceptional. Wonderful combination with the orange and walnuts!
I made this for Christmas and also gave it out for gifts. I used the macadamia nuts and it was very good.
My neighbor is my 'taste-tester' and she thought it didn't have enough taste. She did, however, love the butter spread who wouldn't. I personally like it even without the butter spread better with though.
This bread is a keeper. Gave out as holiday gifts this year. Wish I had made more.
I have made this bread several times - it is so-o-o good!! Always a favorite!
Makes a wonderful Gift. Its so good it won't last long.

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
