Pineapple Orange Bread

Question of the day…..

How do you decide when it’s time to let go of someone? When it’s time walk away and remove them from your life? It’s a very difficult decision, and I know there isn’t a clear cut answer to that question…. but it’s something that’s been on my mind for the last few days. After careful consideration and thought, I suppose it comes down to this: the true measure is when you realize that you’ve been taken advantage of, taken for granted, and (the worst part) lied to.

I always give people the benefit of the doubt. I believe what they tell me (sometimes to my own detriment), because I don’t want to think that everyone is acting with malicious intent. Unfortunately, being fake seems to be the new trend and at the end of the day, self-preservation is what it’s all about.

So be gone with them!

(and have a delicious piece of bread!)

Pineapple Orange Bread – adapted from mel’s kitchen cafe

3 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 tbs. orange zest
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cups Greek pineapple yogurt (I used Fage)

Glaze:
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat two 8″ loaf  pans with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, orange zest, eggs, vanilla, oil, applesauce and yogurt. Fold in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pans and smooth the top. Bake the bread until the top of the loaf is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, about 45-55 minutes.

Let the bread cool completely, then drizzle the glaze over the top. Store in an airtight container.
