Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of two (9x5-inch) loaf pans or five (5 3/4x3-inch) mini loaf pans. Set aside.
  2. Combine sugar and 1 cup softened butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs; continue beating until well mixed. Add sour cream, orange juice and zest; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed. Gently stir in nuts.
  3. Divide batter evenly among prepared pans. Bake 45-55 minutes in 9x5-inch loaf pans, or 35-45 minutes in mini loaf pans or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely.
  4. Combine 1/2 cup butter, powdered sugar and marmalade in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
  5. Variations:
  6. Orange Walnut Poppy Seed Bread: Stir 2 tablespoons poppy seeds into batter with walnuts.

  8. Fruitcake Bread: Reduce walnuts to 1 cup. Combine 1/2 cup flour with 2 cups chopped candied cherry-pineapple mix in bowl; stir to coat. Substitute 1/2 cup brandy or rum* for 1/2 cup orange juice. Stir candied fruit mixture into batter.
