Orange Poppy Seed Bread

28 Apr

Orange Poppy Seed Cake

This is a takeoff from the Pillsbury Orange-sicle Cake Mix.

I have made it a dozen times and it never lasts long.

One package of Pillsbury Orange-sicle Cake Mix.

One 6 once container of orange flavored yogurt

2 eggs

One tablespoon orange zest

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup orange juice

2 teaspoon poppy seeds

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees

Grease a 9 x 5 pan with  a non stick cooking spray

Mix everything together and beat for about two to three minutes.

Pour into a pan and bake for 60 minutes until the center is baked.

May need another five minutes depending on your oven.

You can frost this with orange frosting but I prefer it plain.

This is almost the same recipe that is on the back of the Pillsbury box but I use this as a flavored bread instead of a cake.

I like having different kinds of bread especially when I serve a salad for lunch. I serve lemon, pumpkin, carrot pineapple, zucchini and now orange poppy seed.

It freezes great.

Raspberry Honey Poppy Seed Salad Dressing

31 Mar

 

Raspberry Honey Sesame Salad Dressing

This salad dressing is so good I had to let it stand alone in the blog.

I can actually drink this.

I think I did when I was tasting so much of it.

It goes with everything.

6 ounces of frozen raspberries

1/3 to 1/2 cup honey

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

One teaspoon onion powder

One cup vegetable oil

One teaspoon poppy seeds

Put the raspberries, lemon juice, onion powder, salt and dry mustard in the food processor and process till everything is well mixed and the raspberries are well pureed.

Drizzle the oil in while the processor is running.

You will have a beautiful color pink.

Add the poppy seeds and process just a few pulses.

This is so good with fresh vegetables, chicken, pork or fruit.

This is my new favorite dressing.

I served this with the chopped salad.
