Olive Oil Bread

I like olive oil cake and decided to make one. Since I don’t like things that are very sweet I looked at lots of different recipes and adjusted the ingredients to come up with this one. After a few exeriments I ended up with an olive oil cake that I really like.

In a large bowl mix together these dry ingredients:
220g (1 1/2 C) AP flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
3/4 t salt

In a medium sized bowl mix together these ingredients:
3 eggs
1/4 C sugar + 1 T honey
140g yoghurt
1/2 C olive oil
the zest and the juice of an orange
2 t poppy seeds

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix.

Pour into a pan – I use a silicon pan – and bake for 45 minutes @ 325ºF
You may have to adjust baking temp and time, because I bake at 7,500 feet altitude.

    It looks delicious! Do you think I could substitute an almond flour and coconut flour mixture (3:1) for the all purpose flour?

      I have very little experience with gluten-free baking but that sounds like a good starting point. Let me know how it turns out.
