Preheat oven to 350°F.

Sift together flour, powder, soda and salt. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat well. Combine orange juice, hot water and orange rind in a separate bowl. Add wet and dry ingredients a little at a time to butter mix, alternating beating after each.

Pour batter into greased 9x5x3 inch pan and bake at 350°F oven for 50 - 60 min. Let rest in pan about 5 min., then turn out to cool completely on wire rack. Or at least until cool enough to devour
