Orange Bread (Coffee Cake 1876) No Eggs

“I was playing around with my grandmother's recipes one morning and found this recipe from my great-grandma. I thought it would be more like a loaf, but it's more like a coffee cake and good. I translated some of the old language into modern measurements and it works well.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375* F.
  2. Grease and flour a 9x9 pan.
  3. Combine cream and lemon juice and set aside to "sour".
  4. Wash the orange well (I usually use a little dish soap and rinse really well). Zest the orange, then juice it. Reserve both the orange zest and the juice.
  5. Cream 1 cup sugar and butter until fluffy.
  6. Add in soured cream, vanilla, flour, soda and orange zest and mix until just moistened.
  7. Mix in raisins just until thoroughly distributed.
  8. Scrape batter into prepared pan.
  9. Bake 30 min or until toothpick comes out clean.
  10. While the cake is baking, mix together the orange juice and remaining sugar and microwave until the sugar is dissolved (this is the glaze).
  11. Pour glaze over hot cake and allow to absorb a few min before serving.
  12. ENJOY hot or cooled.
