Orange Nut Bread?

I've been making muffins and quick breads as grab & go breakfast's that are "less processed" than say a pop tart or a bowl of cereal. Today I decided to make apple bread, but when I went to reach for the apples, they were gone. They'd headed out to pasture. Eric suggested I make some "orange bread." We did have a bowl of oranges...
My Version of "Orange Nut Bread"
2 oranges
hot water
2 T butter (melted)
1 t vanilla
1 egg
2 C flour
1/4 t kosher salt
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 C white sugar
1 C chopped walnuts

Zest 1 orange and set aside. Juice 2 oranges into a "1 C" measuring cup and add enough hot water to fill to the 1 Cup line. Combine all ingredients including zest. Pour into 2 prepared loaf pans. Top with chopped walnuts and Turbinado sugar. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

The whole house smells good! Suz
PS - I added the glaze from my mom's Carrot Cake and wow this bread is good!

1/4 C sugar 
1/8-ish C orange juice (or half of an orange juiced)

Mix juice and sugar and pour over the bread as soon as you get it out of the oven. I took them out of the pan pretty quickly after that to cool.
