Orange and poppyseed cake

Today I made a cake for cash - not a bad way to make a bit of pocket money! The recipient requested orange and poppyseed, which I decided to dress up a bit with a cream cheese frosting and some white chocolate curls. It certainly looked pretty good, as to whether or not it tasted ok, I'll have to ask the person who bought it. Fingers crossed everyone loved it and I get a few more orders!

Orange poppyseed cake

1/2 cup yoghurt
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup poppy seeds
1 cup butter
1 cup caster sugar
2 oranges, zested
4 eggs
2 cups SR flour
1/4 cup plain flour


Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius. Grease a 23cm pan. Combine the yoghurt, juice and seeds and set aside. Cream the butter and sugar with the orange zest until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flours and mix well. Fold through the yoghurt mix. Place in prepared pan and bake until a skewer inserted comes out cleanly, reducing heat to 150 Celsius after an hour if the cake has browned but isn't ready.
