Orange Sesame Seed Tea Cake

I saw this recipe this morning and I just had to make it. A small issue I faced was I neither had lemons nor poppy seeds but the bread had to be baked. So I replaced lemons with orange and poppy seeds with sesame seeds and I was ready! I did turn out quite good though it…
