Lemon Loaves

This just may be my very most favorite quick bread, and technically it's not even a bread.  It's actually a cake.  But, like the old saying goes, "If it ain't broke, then don't fix it."  Because this "bread" is absolutely fantastic.  It is tart, sweet, moist, dense and light all at once.  The orange juice really adds to it's bright citrusy flavor, but you never would actually be able to pin point it as one of the main ingredients.  The only problem with this bread, is that it is completely irresistible.  Take my advice and buy double of the ingredients.  Two loaves is not nearly enough. 

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 box of instant lemon pudding mix
4 eggs (at room temperature, beaten)
1 cup of light pulp orange juice

-Preheat oven to 350*.  Spray the sides and bottoms of 2 loaf pans with canola oil spray.  In a large mixing bowl, stir together all of the above ingredients (try to break up all of the lumps).  Pour into loaf pans and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until an inserted wooden toothpick comes out clean.  Makes 2 loaves.  Enjoy!
