Orange Blossom Bread

I like going to the grocery store and looking for ingredients I have never used, like orange blossom honey. This cake is lightly scented with orange and very moist. I am really going to love it toasted and buttered for breakfast tomorrow morning.

1 cup orange blossom honey
4 large eggs
1 Tbsp orange zest
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 pinch baking soda

Set oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9x5 loaf pan with non-stick spray and set aside.

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. 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.

Rookie's Notes: When you are measuring out the honey, spray the inside of your measuring cup with non-stick spray first. It will make it a lot easier for the honey to slide right out.
