Lemon Poppyseed Bread with Lemon Glaze

Please Share Y'all!

In this post I’m sharing the recipe for a Lemon Poppyseed Bread with Lemon Glaze.

Poppy seeds, the slate blue goodies used in baking pastries and breads that we’ve come to love. They add a slight crunch to each bite of your baked goods. Poppy seeds are used in other areas of cooking, such as making dressing recipes.

My favorite by far is the combination with lemon, in a Lemon Poppy Seed Bread with a lemon glaze. It’s so easy to prepare and bake this quick bread recipe. This scratch made bread is great served at breakfast, for snacks or a dessert.

The batter for this recipe takes just a couple of minutes to prepare and can also be used to make muffins if preferred. Allow the bread loaves to cool before making your tangy lemon glaze to drizzle over the bread loaves.

The cook gets the first slice and gets to dab each bite into the leftover glaze. AHHH, the perks of being the cook in the family!

Easy Lemon Poppy See Loaf

 

Lemon Poppyseed Bread would be considered a quick bread since it doesn’t contain yeast, so there’s not waiting around for rising before baking. Just mix the ingredients together and it’s ready to bake.


Ingredients

  • All Purpose Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Buttermilk
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Vanilla Extract
  • The Zest of 1 Lemon ?
  • Lemon Juice
  • Poppy Seeds
Glaze
1/2 c Confectioners Sugar
3 tsp Lemon Juice
Lemon Zest, for garnish if desired
 

Amazing Lemon Loaf

 
 

Preheat oven to 350℉

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl.

Add buttermilk, eggs and vegetable oil and mix to combine.

Add vanilla extract, lemon zest, lemon juice and poppy seeds and stir to incorporate into the batter.

Spray two 8×4 loaf pans with cooking spray.

Divide the batter between the two loaf pans.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until the center is set when a tooth pick is inserted and comes out clean.

If you decide to make muffins: Line a muffin/cupcake tin with paper liners or spray each section with cooking spray. Add batter to each, filling 3/4. Bake 18-20 minutes. Use the tooth pick test for doneness as baking times may vary with ovens.

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread Recipe

Allow the bread loaves to cool about 10 minutes.

To make the glaze: combine confectioners sugar with lemon juice and whisk to combine.

I usually will mix the glaze in a liquid measuring cup so I can drizzle it directly over the bread loaves.

Thank you Kelly. I've edited so the photos are now showing. When the new site went live, the photos that transferred over suddenly weren't showing. I am going through hundreds of posts to edit each one. :) I'm hoping to get to them all within the next two months.
