Those who visited me a while ago and really know me sure you have noticed I love poppy seeds and love when I try a recipe with them.
I think the first thing I tried was a birthday cake with poppy seeds but really everything, the muffins, desserts, cakes and tarts are delicious.
I'm still trying to catch up with all the recipes I have pending.
Well little by little. At least my mood is better. (There are days that make me very sad I don't know why)
Well going to the recipe is an orange cake with poppy seeds and Greek yogurt: I love it
Seasons and Suppers (a wonderful blog from Canada) I really love Jennifer's recipes.
I added some pictures from home only because I love how is the gardens with all the flowers (orange blossoms) and ton of roses. I love roses!

Add the flour mixture first, then all the yogurt, and then the remaining flour. Add the orange juice and poppy seeds and mix to combine.
Spoon batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth top.
Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until a tester inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Remove loaf pan to a cooling rack.
Using a long skewer poke holes into the loaf then brush the top with the orange juice (about 3 tablespoon).
Let loaf sit in pan for 15 minutes then run aknife around the outside and remove the loaf to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Once cooled prepare the glaze combining the ingredients and mixing until smooth. If necessary add a bit more icing sugar or
orange juice to thicken or thin the glaze as you need.
