Lemon Poppy Seed Bread #BreadBakers


When it comes to muffins, I’ll usually end up opting for another snack… unless they’re lemon poppyseed. Yum! I ate a lot of them in college because they were quick, cheap, and filling. Anything lemon poppyseed sounds yummy to me!

Allison knows I love these lemony treats too. So when she told me the theme for this month’s Bread Bakers was Seeds, we both knew I’d be pintertesting this lemon poppy seed bread recipe we recently pinned.


The recipe calls for a lemon glaze to be brushed over top of the loaf, with adds a little sweetness to it. It also gives it a pretty shine!

I’ve always found that when baking with lemon zest/juice, the lemon flavor kinda bakes away. The original recipe called for vanilla extract, so I opted to switch it out for lemon extract instead. I think it helps keep the lemon flavor present!

  1. This is a pin-worthy recipe for sure. I can never have enough lemon recipes and combined with poppy seeds this one looks great! I will have to try it in muffin form next time. They would disappear quickly at my house.

  2. I am of the “the more lemon the better” persuasion so I second your use of the extract. Who needs vanilla when there can be more lemon. Love this beautiful loaf, especially the shiny glaze!

  3. What a classic combination of lemon and poppy seeds! I also use lemon extract in baked goods calling for lemon as a flavor as I think it adds the lemony flavor.
