Orange And Poppyseed Loaf Cake

I don't always have time to make fancy and complicated cakes at work so an easy recipe like this is a true saviour, besides who doesn't like a super moist orange a poppyseed cake?

It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare the batter and thats how easy it is. Better still if you want a dairy free cake you may substitute the butter with cooking oil, that will further reduce the prep time :)

P.S I have just realised 3 hungry tummies had quietly turned 4 on the 3rd this month. Thank you for all you support over the years! Happy cooking and baking!

serves 10 to 12 
pre heated oven 170 C (conventional)
a lined loaf tin
you'll need;
1 1/2 cups of melted butter or vegetable oil
1 1/2  cups of cater sugar
4 eggs + 1 egg white
2 1/4 cups of self rising flour
1 1/2 oranges, cut off the tops and ends, pureed
3 tbs of poppy seeds

for the orange glaze;
1.5 cups of icing mixture
1.5 tbs of orange juice
grated rind of 1 orange

Place melted butter, sugar, eggs and flour in a mixing bowl and mix well.

Mix in the orange puree and poppyseed.

Place batter into a lined loaf tin. (recipe is for a single cake, photo taken at work where multiple cakes are baked)

Allow the cake to cool, you may want to just dust the cake with some icing sugar before serving if you can't be bothered with the orange glaze.

To make the glaze, place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well.

Spread the glaze over the top of the cool cake, allow the glaze to set before slicing.


  1. This cake looks SO good! I bought poppy seeds a month ago, and I still haven't used it! This looks like the perfect place to start!

  2. I was looking for a Sarawak laksa recipe and it brought me to your space. Thanks for the recipe. I also discovered this cake recipe and am loving it. Just like you, I bake the most basic and simplest cakes. This recipe is a must try after I buy the seeds.

  3. How long are you supposed to cook this for?! Just started making it and there is no time specified ;)
