I love the flavor of "Lemon Poppy Seed" anything...muffins, bread etc...it's just comfort food for my soul. This bread is a burst of YummINess!!! It has a very moist, delightful, scrumptious taste...you will be in heaven with the first bite. I wished I had a piece RIGHT NOW....its leaves me wanting more and more and more.
Sunburst Lemon Poppy Seed Bread
2 t. vanilla
1/4 c. milk
1 1/2 flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 T grated lemon zest (wash your lemon first)
3 T. poppy seeds
1 1/2 cubes butter or margarine, softened
1/4 c. lemon juice
1/4 c. powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 3 loaf pans with pan coating/ then flour.
In a medium bowl mix together eggs, vanilla and milk. IN a separate bowl beat flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, lemon zest and poppy seeds. Add softened butter and half the egg mixture, mix on low speed until moistened. Increase the speed to high, beat for 1 minute. Add remaining eggs mixture and beat. Place dough in bread pans. Wrap tinfoil around the sides of bread pans to prevent bread from browning too fast. Bake for 55-65 minutes.
While bread is baking make glaze by mixing both ingredient together and whisking until all powdered sugar is dissolved. Pour over warm bread.
Let bread cool before cutting. EAT and ENJOY....Its one of my favorites right now.
