Satsuma Poppy Seed Loaf
Makes 1 (8×4-inch) loaf
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Satsuma orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • Satsuma Glaze (recipe follows)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray an 8×4-inch loaf pan with baking spray.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl whisk together milk, oil, eggs, zest, vanilla, and poppy seeds. Fold milk mixture into flour mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour and 5 minutes, covering after 45 minutes to prevent excess browning. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely. Drizzle with Satsuma Glaze before serving.

  • 2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed Satsuma juice

Kitchen Tip: Use fresh local citrus when available for even tastier results. Look for fruits that don’t have a shiny peel for the best-tasting zest.
