One of my favourite quick breads to whip up for lunchtime snacks (I freeze slices for lunch boxes) or when I'm low on ingredients... I can still usually make this!
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar (white or brown works fine)
1 tsp baking soda
1-2 tbsp poppy seeds
zest of 1 orange (optional, but it does add more orange flavour)
1 cup orange juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 165 c. Coat a loaf tin with nonstick spray.
Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and poppy seeds in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together orange zest, juice and vanilla extract. Add orange mixture to dry ingredients, mix well. Pour into loaf tin and bake 30 minutes, or until inserted skewer comes out clean.
Remove from oven, turn out onto wire rack and let cool before slicing.
