Old Fashioned Orange Bread Recipe

Tasty sweet bread is always very welcome at any tea table. Often the soda breads involve creaming of the butter and sugar. Without the help of an electric stand mixer, such as one of the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixers, it is hard work. With a mixer though it is easy and anyone can accomplish it.

To give you an idea, here is a recipe for a good old fashioned orange bread.
