Orange Nut Bread

This is a recipe my grandma used to make every Christmas. I now use it as a favorite holiday food gift.

2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup chopped pecans
4 teaspoons orange peel, grated
3/4 cup orange juice

GLAZE: 2 cups powdered sugar, 1-2 tablespoons orange juice.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 small loaf pans. Measure all ingredients into mixing bowl and beat at medium speed for 30 seconds. Scrape sides constantly. Pour into pans. Bake 55-60 minutes. Remove from pans and cool. Drizzle with glaze and sprinkle with colored sugar. This is wonderful with a cup of tea.
