- at room temperature

Adapted from saltandchocolate.com
Preheat an oven to 350ºF. Spray a 1lb loaf tin with baking spray
In a bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter, sugar and zest until blended. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
Add the flour mixture alternating with the milk. Beat until blended and smooth.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.
Make the tangerine syrup: Take the juice and sugar and reduce by half over medium high heat. Once reduced set aside to cool.
Remove the bread from the oven, using a fork or skewer, gently poke the top in several places. Slowly drizzle syrup over the hot bread. Let the bread cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then turn the loaf out onto the rack, top side up, and let cool completely.
