How to make

  1. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 4
