INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (plain, vanilla, or even an orange flavor)
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3 Orange Delight PEEPS Chicks
  • 1 tbsp butter (in addition to 1/2 cup listed above)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup grated orange zest (about six oranges)
  • 1 tbsp orange extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Spray two loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a mixer, combine butter, oil, Greek yogurt and sugar until light and fluffy, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  4. In a small pan, over medium heat, melt Orange Delight Peeps Chicks and 1 tablespoon butter, stirring until smooth.  Remove from heat and continue stirring to help cool.  Add to the butter, oil, Greek yogurt and sugar mixture.  Mix well to combine, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add in eggs, one at a time, mixing on low after each egg. Add in orange zest and orange extract and stir to combine.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  7. Add half of the dry mixture to the butter and sugar mixture, and stir until just combined. Add orange juice, vanilla and 1/2 of the buttermilk to the mixture and stir until just combined. Add the remaining dry mixture, stirring until just combined, followed by the remaining buttermilk, stirring until just combined.
  8. Divide the batter between both loaf pans. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes to one hour or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool
  9. If desired you can make a glaze of 3 cups powdered sugar and 3-5 tablespoons orange juice to drizzle over the top of your loaves. Just mix the two together in a bowl until you get the consistency t you want. More liquid to make it thinner, more powdered sugar to make it thicker. I like to add a few drops of vanilla and a sprinkle of salt to give the flavor a bit more depth. It works best to pour the glaze on while the bread is still warm.
  10. Serve with Orange Delight PEEPS Chicks as garnish.

Note: Makes two standard (9×5) loaves.  Recipe may be halved.
