orange yogurt loaf

I made an Orange Yogurt Loaf...
It was tasty.

Orange Yogurt Loaf
1 cup butter/margarine, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice
zest of 1 orange
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup icing sugar
2 tsp orange juice

Cream the butter and sugar together then add the eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. Add the yogurt, orange juice and zest, mix until combined. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl, and mix. Add to creamed mixture mixing until just combined. Pour into two 8.5"x4.5" or one 9"x5" loaf pan(s). 
Bakes at 350 for 55-65 minutes until a tooth pick comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes in pan before removing to a wire rack. Allow to cool completely.
For the glaze mix the icing sugar and juice until you're happy with the consistency, you may need to add more or less of each ingredient.
Pour over cooled loaves.
