|Local Orange Flower Honey|
This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Honey Banana Poppy Seed Bread. As I was running late this week, I read some of my fellow Bakesters comments and posts before I headed into the kitchen. Surprisingly, this recipe met with mixed reviews. But, then everyone has a favorite Banana Bread recipe. Ours is Sour Cream Banana Bread.
What made me curious about this recipe was the addition of 1/4 cup of honey. I used locally sourced Raw Honey from Orange flowers. The other surprise ingredient is Poppy Seeds. I thought about leaving then out, but I love lemon poppy seed bread, so decided to trust the Baked Boys and jump right in.
I took the advice of some fellow Bakesters and covered my bread with a foil tent after 40 minutes to ensure the center of the bread was cooked through without over-browning the top.
This is a perfect bread for tea! It smelled great while baking and the honey lends a deepness to the flavor. We’ll enjoy it for breakfast tomorrow.
