August 1, 2022: Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf
August 21st, 2022 by Alex Koster

I’ve always wanted to try making lemon loaf (mainly because I love the one at Starbucks) and the addition of poppy seeds makes the loaf look much prettier and adds a gentle crunch. I found a recipe from delscookingtwist and it turned out great. The loaf was the perfect snack on our road trip to Lake George for a family vacation.

The recipe is pretty simple but has a fair number of steps starting with sifting the flour into a bowl and adding the baking powder and salt. Then in a different bowl use a mixer to cream the butter and sugar until smooth then add the eggs one by one along with the lemon juice, zest, and poppy seeds. Finally, mix in the milk and the flour mixture and pour the batter into a butter loaf pan to bake! Your oven should be preheated to 350 degrees and the cooking time is 50-60 minutes. (Toothpick inserted into the middle should come out clean.) Once cooled you can add a glaze which is incredibly easy to make (just combine lemon juice, powdered sugar, and milk). Ingredients listed below:

For the loaf:

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups unsalted, soft butter (but not melted)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 3/4 cup milk

For the glaze:

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 3 teaspoons milk
