Orange Quick Bread

Adapted from Henri Bakes

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
zest of 1 orange

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease 9x5" loaf pan or paper mold. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
2. In a bowl mix together milk and lemon juice. Let stand until mixture starts to curdle, about 5 minutes. Whisk in orange juice, canola oil, egg, and vanilla.
3. In a large bowl mix together sugar and orange zest. Add milk mixture and stir well. Add flour mixture, all at once, and stir well just until batter forms. Pour batter into prepared pan.
4. Bake loaf for 50-60 minutes or until browned on top and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool to room temperature and then slice & serve!

Makes 1. I've called this a "quick bread" rather than loaf as it is dryer and not cake-like. This bread goes well with jam!
