"This recipe was inspired by a family recipe and my favorite orange cookies. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Flavor is best if baked the day before serving."
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
3 cups white sugar
2 tablespoons grated orange zest
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups pumpkin
3/4 cup canola oil
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup orange juice
For the Glaze:
2/3 cup confectioners
2 teaspoons lemon juice, or as needed
2 teaspoons orange juice
1 cinnamon stick, freshly grated
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and lightly flour 2 loaf pans.
Combine flour, white sugar, orange zest, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and ginger in a bowl.
Beat eggs in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add pumpkin, oil, milk, and 1/4 cup orange juice; beat on medium speed until combined. Add the flour mixture in 2 batches, blending well after each addition. Pour batter into the prepared pans.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Turn loaves onto a rack to finish cooling, about 20 minutes more.
