How To Make Orange Poppy Seed Pound Cake

Serve up this mouthwatering pound cake recipe for brunch today! It’s got a tangy taste from the oranges and added texture from the poppy seeds.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 50 minutes
Total: 1 hour 10 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • cups whole wheat pastry flouror white whole wheat flour or regular whole wheat flour
  • cuppoppy seeds
  • 2tspbaking powder
  • ¼tspfine grain sea salt
  • 1 medium organic orangeto yield about 2 teaspoons zest and ¼ cup juice
  • 1cupsugar
  • ¾cupplain whole-milk yogurt
  • 3eggs
  • ½tsppure vanilla extract
  • ½cupextra-virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Generously butter a 8 ½ x 4 ¼ x 2 ½-inch loaf pan.

  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, and salt.

  4. Pour the sugar into a medium-sized mixing bowl.

  5. Grate all the zest from the orange. Rub the zest into the sugar until the sugar is orange and fragrant.

  6. Slice the orange in half for juicing. In a liquid measuring cup, measure out ¾ cup yogurt and squeeze in about ¼ cup orange juice to yield 1 cup total liquid.

  7. Whisk the yogurt and orange juice, eggs and vanilla into the sugar mixture.

  8. When the mixture is well blended, gently whisk in the dry ingredients, just until incorporated.

  9. Switch to a spatula and fold in the oil until incorporated.

  10. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top.

  11. Bake the cake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until the top is golden and the sides start to pull away from the sides of the pan. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.

  12. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then run a knife between the cake and the sides of the pan to loosen.

  13. Unmold the cake by placing a large plate upside down over the loaf pan and carefully turning it over.

  14. Let the cake cool to room temperature right-side up.

  15. Serve, and enjoy!
