For a relaxing afternoon, try a slice of this cake paired with coffee. Our favorite combination is with a latte macchiato!
Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Grease a loaf pan with oil. If needed, line with parchment paper. Combine poppy seeds, vanilla sugar, and some of the vegetable oil. Zest and juice oranges, then set aside.
Mix together eggs, some of the orange juice, and yogurt.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, orange zest, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix to combine. Stir in remaining oil.
Transfer half of the batter into prepared pan, then add the ground poppy seed filling. Top with remaining batter, then use a fork a knife to swirl poppy seeds through the batter to create a marble effect. Bake in preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for approx. 45 – 60 min., or until a toothpick comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs. Cool for approx. 15 min., then turn out of pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
Combine orange juice with powdered sugar to create a glaze.
Drizzle glaze over cooled cake and decorate as desired! Enjoy!
