Orange Poppyseed Loaf

Good Eats Wednesday

I have many cookbooks that I have been eager to dive into... and now that I have a little more time, I'm excited to start. So here is an Orange Poppyseed Loaf that I have baked from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book from the bakery in NYC.


This loaf is super delicious and extremely moist. You can see on my handwritten notes that I have also tried the lemon version which was equally as good, but there are some variations in the ratios on sugar and such. Also, I didn't make the glaze in both instances and thought it to be extremely delicious without...

Orange Poppyseed Loaf

1 whole orange, washed well
1 cup sugar
3eggs
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) of butter (melted)
2  1/4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4  teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon poppyseeds
Mix wet ingredients in a bowl, and mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Fold the two together.
Bake at 350 F for 50-60 minutes.

 
*I used only one stick of butter.
If you opt for the glaze see photo for recipe.

**I just have one recommendation for the recipe which calls for the whole orange or lemon to be pureed in a food processor, but the white part of the orange and lemon can make it a tad bitter, so it may best to grate the zest, then cut the fruit and then puree the fruit minus the seeds.

Bon appetit!
