Almond Poppyseed Bread

Next week we have some BIG, exciting posts planned + some really great goodies. If you have been a loyal reader of OSD for a while you know that during the holidays we like to a big giveaway for you. Sometimes several separate big items, sometimes 1 grand giveaway. This year we are changing things up. It’s not just a giveaway! It will be a whole week of tips, tricks, recipe on how to SERVE others through food!

We are surrounded by people all day everyday who are always in need of something. It may be small or it may be a large donation-regardless every human could use something. In the midst of our busy, busy lives we often forget this. Between technology, work, kids, responsibilities, and play those little times to serve get lost. So next week we are sharing how to serve with food!! Were not just talking about the poor, but also a family during a stressful time, a friend working her way through grief, or just someone who is lonely. Food can be a HUGE tool, an easy ice breaker, and lets face it– we all need food to survive. So why not serve with food?

We were so excited when we noticed released their Christmas Campaign is to find opportunities to serve and share Christ’s light by doing what he did. Day 9 in particular is just what we believe & do. Jesus fed the hungry, and so can you.  Starting Dec.1  they show us how in 25 way for 25 days we can #LightTheWorld.

Over the years this Almond Poppyseed bread recipe has been one of my favorite, most popular item. When taken to friends, neighbors and those in need they all ask for more. It’s a light, fluffy sweet bread- with a orange citrus twist. EVERY.ONE.LOVES.IT.period.

I love using these little pans for my sweet breads. Breads take a long time to cook, it seems like I can never get the time worked out between my oven, my pan and the batter. (over cooked top, undercooked middle, crappy ovens etc) But these cheap (a little over $1 for 5) aluminum pans always bake them perfectly and quickly.

This almond poppyseed batter is pretty easy and forgiving. Bake in these pans for half the time of large loaves. Slowly our the orangey, sweet glaze over the tops. This bread is addicting, beware.
