Tangerine Bread

May 29, 2018

Spongy, light and with an intense tangerine flavor.

We are right in the middle of the citrus season in Paraguay. So many fruits on the floor and on the trees. It seems that we can’t consume everything in the short time they are ripe. We use them in everything that comes to mind; jams, cakes, bread, juices, put in the freezer, and even then, the trees are still full.

A few weeks ago I made this bread using grapefruit. With so many grapefruits right now I wanted to see if they would work for making baked goods. The flavor wasn´t there, it was good, but not what I was expecting. I did love the texture, so I kept the main ingredients and changed the grapefruit for tangerines.
Beating the eggs for 5 minutes and using self-rising flour is the secret to making this tangerine bread light and spongy. I’m sure it would be yummy with oranges or limes.

  1. Oh how lucky to have a tangerine tree! I tried to grow one in a pot before but it didn’t survive. It’s too cold where I am. The bread sounds wonderful! Oh btw I just sent you an email re: FF Cohosting Guidelines.
