Orange. Pecan. Tea. So many flavors are packed into this delicous bread. I can't wait to sink my teeth into it. It sounds like it would be perfect in the morning with a cup of coffee.

Ingredients:
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 3 tablespoons 1% low-fat milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange rind
  • 2 large eggs
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped pecans, toasted 
Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and the next 5 ingredients (flour through allspice) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk; make a well in center of mixture. Combine granulated sugar and the next 7 ingredients (sugar through eggs), stirring with a whisk; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
Spoon batter into an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Combine powdered sugar and juice, stirring until smooth. Drizzle glaze over bread, and sprinkle with 1 1/2 teaspoons pecans.
