Triple Citrus-Ginger Quick Bread
Zest from three types of citrus fruit—orange lemon and lime—adds a refreshing note to this quick bread, while candied ginger lends a sweet undertone.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- Zest of 1 orange
- Zest of 1 lemon
- Zest of 1 lime
- 1/2 cup finely diced candied ginger
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 8 Tbs. (1 stick) unsalted butter,< melted and cooled
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat an oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the orange, lemon and lime zests and the candied ginger and toss to distribute evenly.
In another bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, butter and vanilla. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until combined. Do not overmix.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the top of the loaf is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Turn the loaf out onto the rack and let cool completely before serving. Makes 1 loaf.
