What You’ll Need

  • 1/2 cup orange juice 
  • 1/2 cup water 
  • 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil 
  • 2 tsp orange rind (grated) 
  • 2 tsp sugar 
  • 2-1/2 tsp active dry yeast 
  • 1 tsp sage (finely ground) 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 3 cups bread flour, about 

How to Make It

  1. In large bowl, add the orange juice, water, oil, rind, sugar, yeast, sage, and salt. Mix until yeast and sugar are dissolved.
  2. Mix in enough flour, a half cup at a time, to form a soft dough.
  3. Turn dough out onto floured board and knead it for about 5 minutes, adding more flour, a tablespoon at a time, if needed.
  4. Put dough into greased bowl. Flip dough over in bowl so that the top of the dough is also lightly greased.
  5. Cover the dough and let rise in warm place for 1 hour or until double in bulk.
  6. Punch down dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured board.
  7. Quickly knead the dough for about 2 minutes to get the air bubbles out.
  8. Shape dough into a loaf and put dough into a greased, 9 x 5 x 2.5 inch loaf pan.
  9. Cover it and let rise for 30 minutes or until doubled.
  10. Bake at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
