Lemon Poppy Seed Bread recipe is a favorite for breakfast or dessert with a delicious light crumb and plenty of lemon shining through. A favorite Lemon Loaf from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I've been dreaming of making this Lemon Poppy Seed Bread for weeks.

I kept telling Colt every time we stepped foot in Trader Joes we need a bag of lemons so I can make my Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf.

It's one of those weird things if we don't buy them they'll be gone, but of course when we do I still have a bag that wasn't touched.

I'm sure Colt and the kids were leaving the lemons in anticipation of me finally using them.

Yesterday morning I realized I had 5 bags of lemons in the fridge, I may have discovered I have a problem with hoarding lemons. This is what happens if I don't create a detailed list before heading to the grocery store, and I'll forget the one thing that I really need like milk.

I can't believe it took me this long to make this loaf since it really is super easy.

I also loved how the kids all went straight to the kitchen after school to find out what I was baking.

I've discovered when I'm having a difficult day doing something nice for someone else like Colt and the kids definitely helps me to feel better, and this loaf accomplished just that! 

The hardest part was keeping LJ away from the Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf until Colt could take the finished photos, the kid was like a vulture, and only asked a million times when he could have a slice.

This Lemon Loaf is perfect in just about every way with a divine crumb, not overly sweet, and plenty of lemon shining through.

The hardest part is sharing the loaf, next time I'll need to make 2! 

Here's how I make my Lemon Poppy Seed Bread:

Butter, sugar and lemon zest for Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf recipe.

Cream together: 
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Zest
Until light and fluffy.

Tip: I like using a vegetable peeler to peel the lemon zest and then finely chopping the peel. 

Whole Eggs being added to creamed sugar mixture for Lemon Poppy Seed Bread.

Add 2 whole Eggs one at a time and beat well between each addition.

Milk, lemon juice, vanilla added to Lemon Poppy Seed Bread batter.

Add: 
  • 2/3 cup Milk
  • 1/3 cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

Mix until combined and scrape sides of bowl well.

Poppy Seeds, flour, baking powder, salt added to Lemon Poppy Seed Bread Batter.

Add: 
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour or Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder

  • 2 tablespoons Poppy Seeds

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread Batter.

Mix until combined but don't over mix.  Scrape sides of bowl as needed.

Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf batter in a bread pan.

Grease a 9"x5"x3" loaf pan with butter.

Add Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf batter to pan.

Allow batter to rest for 20 minutes while preheating oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake for 60-70 minutes until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean.

Allow loaf to cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan to a cooling rack, to finish cooling completely. 

Lemon Glaze for Lemon Poppy Seed Bread Loaf.

To make the Lemon Glaze add: 
  • 1 cup Sifted Powdered Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice

Stir until smooth and well combined.

Glaze should be thick but able to drizzle, if needed add additional lemon juice 1/4 teaspoon at a time.
