I had champagne leftover and I decided why not make something out of it. I looked over the Internet and I was lead to this great recipe for an orange and champagne bread. I decided to try it. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is and how great it tasted. We served it with pasta but it would compliment a soup or salad. It could be paired with fruit and eggs for a fancy brunch.
3 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup Champagne
1/2 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp. grated orange zest
optional 3 Tbsp. melted butter for the top of the bread
You will first mix together the dry ingredients .
Then you grate in the orange peel.
Finally, will mix in the wet ingredients. The bread will be a bit lumpy that is fine place. When you have mixed it you will place it in a greased loaf pan. You will cook it at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
Note: This recipe for the liquid can be substituted for a 12 oz beer or soda to change the flavor of the bread. It is an easy base for an awesome bread.
