Clementine Tea Bread

If you love clementines as much as I do, then you’ll delight in this zesty recipe. Moist, tender, and full of scrumptious flavor, this seasonal bread pairs perfectly with a cup of hot tea.

Clementines are only available for a limited time, so get them now while you can. Bursting with sweet, juicy goodness, they make the perfect snack. Easy to peel, these yummy little gems can be stored at room temperature for up to a week. You also can substitute oranges in place of clementines, if desired.

Since the season for clementines is fleeting, it’s a good idea to double the recipe and bake two loaves of bread. Savor one now and stash the other in the freezer to enjoy at a later time. This is a great way to extend the taste of these refreshing citrus fruits – my darling, clementines.


1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar, plus 2 teaspoons
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons finely grated clementine zest
1 1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds
3 tablespoons clementine juice
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease the bottom of an 8×4-inch loaf pan. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, combine the 1/2 cup sugar and butter. Beat with an electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in clementine zest and poppy seeds. Transfer to prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack set over foil. Cool 10 minutes more. Meanwhile, combine clementine juice and the remaining 2 teaspoons sugar in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH just until sugar has dissolved, about 10 seconds. Stir well. Poke a long skewer into the top of bread at about 1-inch intervals; brush clementine-sugar mixture over bread. Cool completely. Makes 1 medium loaf.
