A quick and easy sweet tasting lemon poppy seed bread topped with a sugar glaze that will satisfy any sweet tooth!

Hi Friends!! I’ve missed you all so much! Between the stresses of the whole Covid-19 situation and our house rebuilding, I have found myself in a slump. I’m sure many of you can relate. But now that the weather is changing and the kids are finally done with school (Wisconsin goes super late compared to the other states we have lived in) I am finally feeling a little more “free” (minus the house stuff, it’s beyond agonizing. Our temporary living just had to be extended by 2 months…I’ll have to catch you all up to speed on that because I’ve been getting lots of messages).

Anyway, I wanted to share with you all a new recipe I tried out from Garnish With Lemon, and absolutely loved! Lemon poppy seed bread with an added sugar glaze!

When I was growing up, our next door neighbor made a lemon poppy seed bread for my family one time and it was the very first time I had ever had poppy seeds! I immediately fell in love! It was the best sweet bread I had ever had!

Fast forward to way too many years later, I finally looked up a recipe for a lemon poppy seed bread and made it for my family! It was almost as delicious as the one my neighbor made…something about someone else making food for you has a magic goodness to it! (something you don’t appreciate until you are stuck at home with your family for 3 months eating all meals in house! lol)

    I don't like yogurt AT ALL, Can sour cream be used instead?

      Just curious, did you actually make the bread? I use yogurt in a bread recipe occasionally, and I cannot taste it. I don't like plain ff yogurt either!
