ACTIVE TIME: 15 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 35 minutes
Yield: 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 cup orange blossom honey
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Heat oven to 325ºF. Lightly coat a loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together honey and eggs until thoroughly integrated. Stir in orange zest. Sift together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add slowly to egg mixture. Lightly grease a loaf pan with butter. Add the mixture to the pan and bake. After 30 minutes check for doneness with a wooden skewer. (If it comes out clean, you are done. If not, give it another 5 minutes and check it again).
