Lemon Poppyseed Bread

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
2 Eggs
5oz Lemon Flavors Greek Yogurt
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 Lemon  for Zest & 3 Tbsp Juice
Pam Spray

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.

Bake about 40 minutes. Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan.

  14. I love lemon poppy seed bread! And I'm glad you skipped the glaze. Normally, I glaze sweet breads too, but it never seemed right with lemon poppy seed.

  15. Dropping by from “Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop” on ‘Recipes for our Daily Bread.’

    This looks wonderful! I don't think I'm going to be able to find lemon Greek yogurt, though. Clearly we're deprived where I live. But I bet plain or vanilla with a few drops of lemon juice would work.
    Have you ever had to substitute something or is lemon greek yogurt common where you live? Thanks!
    p.s. Going to pin this recipe right now.

    1. I was actually surprised to find Lemon flavored Greek yogurt as well. The recipe I adapted this one from used plain yogurt so that will totally be fine. Hope you enjoy it!!
