Lemon Poppyseed Bread
Want some amazingly delicious lemon-poppyseed bread?
Cut in half…
Throw in some other random stuff…
Ok, ok, so maybe it isn’t that easy-but it is pretty darn simple and quick (it is quick bread afterall 😀 hehe)
So now for the real recipe!
-1 cup yogurt (just regular, not Greek this time*)
~could be any flavor you’re feeling, I recommend vanilla, plain or lemon though
-juice of 1 lemon (reserve 1 tsp. if making glaze)
-1/2 cup applesauce (can be sugar free)
-1/3 cup sugar (or any sugar substitute)
-1 pinch salt
-1 tsp. baking powder
-1/2 tsp. baking soda
-1 TBSP. poppy seeds
-1 1/2 cups flour (I like to use white whole wheat, but 1/2 white & 1/2 whole wheat works well too!)
1. Preheat oven to 350* Cream all up to salt
2. Add salt through flour
3. Pour into a small loaf pan that has been greased and floured
4. Bake until golden (about 45 minutes)
5. Remove from oven and let cool in pan at least ten minutes
6. While cooling-you can make the glaze!
-powdered sugar (or powdered sugar substitute)
-splash of milk
-1 tsp. lemon juice reserved from earlier
-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
-lemon zest grated from lemons used earlier
~Mix all liquids together and slowly whisk in powdered sugar until a glaze consistency you’re happy with forms!
~Pour glaze over semi-cooled bread (if you want the glaze to really seep into the bread and infuse it with flavor-poke the bread with a toothpick before pouring glaze over bread)
Yummy-yummy-yummy! Enjoy my friends 🙂
