Pot O' Gold Bread

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
5 large egg yolks
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

For glaze:
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon orange zest

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grease and flour a 9X5X3 bread pan (or use Recipe #78579).
In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Add butter, egg yolks, milk and vanilla and mix well.
Pour batter into pan and bake for 60-70 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. While bread is cooling prepare the glaze.
For Glaze:.
In sauce pan combine orange juice, zest and powdered sugar. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it comes to a boil.
After bread has cooled remove from the pan and place on wax paper. Poke holes in the top of the bread with a fork, or a long toothpick (I use a bamboo skewer). Pour the warm glaze over the top slowly, a little at a time, to fully saturate the bread.
