Jolly Roger's

My folks used to winter in San Diego many years ago, and one of their favorite restaurants was Jolly Roger's.  I found their "melt in your mouth" orange bread recipe.  It's good plain, or toasted, or even as a base for french toast (try coconut syrup on top). 

4 1/2 cups flour

2 1/4 tablespoons baking powder
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Zest of 2 small oranges
1/2 teaspoon soda
3/4 cup oil
1/4 cup white corn syrup
4 eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons orange extract
Few drops yellow food color
Few drops orange food color
Juice of 2 oranges
Evaporated milk

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in large mixing bowl. Mix well. Combine orange zest and soda in small bowl. Let stand 5 minutes. Add to flour mixture. Mix well.

Combine oil, corn syrup, eggs, orange extract, yellow and orange food color in another large bowl. Combine orange juice with evaporated milk to make 2 1/2 cups and add to orange mixture. Mix well until blended.

Slowly add liquid mixture to flour mixture. Mix well until blended. Pour into 2 (9x5-inch) loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees about 1 hour, or until wood pick inserted in center comes out clean. Makes 2 loaves.
