Recipe by @rawpublic_

Cooking time: 1.5hrs

  • 2 cups The Kind Harvest Plain Flour

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 2.5 tbsp of poppy seeds

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (I used olive)

  • 1/4 orange zest

  • 1/3 cup orange juice (freshly squeezed)

  • 1/4 cup apple sauce

  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

  • 1 cup milk (I used soy milk)


  • 3/4 orange juice (freshly squeezed)

  • 1 cup sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 180'C

  2. Line a 8 x 4-inch loaf tin with baking paper.

  3. Add the Good Harvest Plain Flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda and salt to a mixing bowl. Add in the oil, orange zest, apple sauce, vanilla and milk and gently stir to combine.

  4. Transfer to a 8x4-inch loaf tin and bake until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean, roughly 40-55 minutes.

  5. While the cake is baking, prepare the syrup.

  6. Place syrup ingredients into a small saucepan and heat on medium temperature until the sugar has dissolved. Once the sugar has dissolved, bring to a gentle boil. When then syrup mixture has reduced to about a thrid, remove from the heat and allow to cool.

  7. Once the cake is done, remove from tin, place on wire rack and drizzle with orange syrup.
