Calories: 211 | Carbs: 25g | Fat: 10.8g | Protein : 4.3g



1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ cup non-hydrogenated margarine
½ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
zest of 1 orange
½ cup orange juice
½ cup partly skimmed milk
¼ cup chopped nuts


Preheat oven at 350°F. If you use a silicone bread mould you will not need to grease and flour the mould, therefore minimizing the fat content.

In a large bowl, blend the flours and baking powder. In another bowl, beat margarine and brown sugar. Add eggs and zest and beat for 1 minute.

At low speed, gradually add flour mixture while alternating with juice and milk.Pour batter in mould and top with chopped nuts.

Place mould on center rack in oven and bake for approximately 1 hour or until a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean. Remove from mould and allow to cool.
