Poppy seed bread is one of my favorite quick breads to make. It is almost always a lemon poppy seed bread and it doesn't matter what recipe I use... I love it! I was really excited to try this SMS recipe and see if I liked poppy seed bread with orange instead of lemon.
The most interesting part of this recipe is that it uses the ENTIRE orange. You plop the orange, skin and all, into the food processor and pulverize. I loved how there were teeny, tiny chunks of orange peel throughout the bread. It tasted a lot like candied orange peel. YUM!!!
The bread (or cake. Who are we kidding? :) ) gets brushed with a lemon/orange glaze straight out of the oven. It made the bread so moist!
I really enjoyed this recipe and will definately be making it over and over again. It also makes me want to try it with an entire lemon and see if it works that way, too!
Thanks to Melissa of LuLu the Baker for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at her blog.
