Eggless Orange & Poppy Seeds Bread Rolls

Once winter starts here, one can see varieties of citrus fruits in our farmer's market. I love to bake with citrus fruits, especially with dark chocolate. However i want to bake a simple bread rolls flavoured with orange and its was in my to do list since a long. Once oranges showed their heads in our nearby farmers, i couldnt stop myself gathering all the ingredients to bake out some spongy and soft bread rolls with them. Black poppyseeds is added to this bread rolls to bring some nuttiness and flavour as well. Obviously these bread rolls are super aromatic which can be enjoyed with jam, nutella or else simply with honey. However one can have this bread rolls with any sort of spreads or drinks for their breakfast to snacks.

Black poppy seeds are usually combined to bake some tremendous bakes with lemon, but trust me they works prefect with oranges as well. I have already baked some muffins and cakes with this orange and black poppyseeds combination and we loved it. Needless to say that this bread rolls are completely egg free, if you want to bake them as vegan, just skip the milk and butter in this bread. Since i want my bread rolls bit rich, i couldnt stop myself adding both butter and milk. One can mix and match the ingredients in this bread depending upon your tastebuds. You can also bake this bread rolls as swirls, loaf or simply as mini bread rolls by using muffin pan. This bread rolls are going to Bake-a-Thon, a yearly event am running during this whole month of december only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
