This delicious gluten-free loaf with Florida OJ is the perfect treat to brighten up these cold winter days. It’s delicious on its own but made even better with a simple citrus glaze! This recipe was made in partnership with Florida Orange Juice, but all opinions are my own.
This loaf was one of my absolute favorite recipes my mom made and continues to make to this day! It’s such a simple cake style loaf to make, but the original version was filled with added sugar and oil, so I of course needed to give it a little nutritious spin with Florida OJ.
This gluten-free loaf is made with 100% orange juice, gluten-free baking flour, sweetened with maple syrup and applesauce, and topped with a delicious citrus glaze.
Why choose Florida Orange Juice?
An 8-oz adult serving of 100% orange juice can provide key nutrients such as vitamin C, folate, potassium, and thiamin, which can all help support a healthy immune system.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect your cells from free radicals- which when accumulated, cause oxidative stress in our bodies. Vitamin C supports the immune system by protecting your cells, promoting the production and function of immune cells.
An 8-ounce serving of 100% orange juice provides you with more than the recommended daily intake for vitamin C. It’s important to note that orange juice provides you with vitamins and minerals and helps support hydration because it contains several electrolytes, including potassium and calcium (in fortified juices), and magnesium in smaller amounts. Be sure to pair your glass of Florida OJ with a fiber filled breakfast for a perfectly balanced meal (a veggie omelet would be perfect!)
While I do enjoy a glass of juice here and there, I love baking with Florida Orange Juice, too. This orange loaf is the perfect way to start your morning, and a favorite in our house.
