    Orange Glaze

    • zest of one half orange
    • juice of a half orange
    • 1/2 cup honey


    • In a large bowl cream with a mixer the butter, cream cheese and sugar until creamy and fluffy.
    • Add eggs one at a time. Beat in bananas and vanilla.
    • Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and add gradually to the creamy mixture. Fold in one cup pecans.
    • Transfer to two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Sprinkle with remaining pecans.
    • Bake at 350 F for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
    • In a small bowl whisk together orange zest, juice and honey. Drizzle over loaves after cooling the loaves for 10 minutes. I like to double the orange glaze and drizzle some over each piece served.
