This month for Secret Recipe Club we were assigned Fit Mama Real Food. Heather is a busy mom of two kids who posts not only recipes but ideas for what her family eats for an entire week at a time. I think that's a great idea to plan ahead for both cooking and shopping. I was looking for something to enjoy for breakfast and came across her recipe for Lemon Poppyseed Bread. I was considering making a glaze to pour over top but I'm so glad I didn't. The bread has enough moisture and sweetness by itself it doesn't need a sugary glaze.
2 Cups Bread Flour
1 1/2 Tbsp Poppy seeds
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/3 Cup I can't Believe it's not butter - Melted
5oz Lemon Flavors Greek Yogurt
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 Lemon for Zest & 3 Tbsp Juice
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Grease a loaf pan with Pam spray and set aside. In a large bowl combine together all of the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and poppy seeds.)
In a medium sized bowl combine together all of the wet ingredients (eggs, vanilla, melted butter, yogurt, lemon juice and zest.)
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Using a spatula mix everything together until the batter is completely combined and the batter is thick. Transfer the batter into the loaf pan. Spread it out into the pan with the spatula and give it a few good shakes or taps to have it fill in the corners.
