The first time I heard bread and saw cakes lined up instead I was confused to say the least. Apparently, there are a lot of breads which are made with ingredients for a cake. Baking powder instead of yeast in these breads are the difference. Also, like in the banana bread recipe the important fact to remember is not to beat the ingredients. Only mix them till they are blend together.
The recipe has been adapted as aforementioned from a cook bookowever. I changed some of the ingredients to my liking and it works well.
Flour - 1 1/2 cups
Granulated Sugar - 1 cup + 2 tbspn
Baking Powder - 3/4 tspn
Salt - 3/4 tspn
Eggs - 1 large or 2 small
Milk - 3/4 cups
Vegetable oil - 3/4 cups
Vanilla essence - 3/4 tspn
ornage essence - 3/4 tspn
butter flavouring - 3/4 tspn
Granulated sugar - 1/4 cup + 2 tbspn
Orange juice - 2 tbspn
All essence as above - 1/4 tspn each
1. Take all the ingredients above in a large bowl and mix for two minutes on medium speed. Bake in a bread loaf pan in a preheated oven at 350 D F for an hour.
2. Once the bread is cooked transfer it to a cooling rack and while hot pour the glaze on top of the bread.
P.S: Please remember not to beat the batter just mix at a low speed till all the ingredients come together. This is important to keep the softness of the bread
