Poppy Seed Bread

"Preparation time's kept to a minimum for Rosemarie Survillo's seeded treat. 'It's a bread that you can make a day ahead of time, and then warm in the microwave moments prior to serving for just-baked appeal,' she hints from her home in Lake St. Louis, Missouri."

  1. In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another bowl, beat eggs, milk, oil and extracts. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour into two greased 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

Very nice bread. I cut the recipe in half and used 2 eggs, 1 Tbsp. of poppy seeds, 1/4 c. of oil and 1 tsp. of vanilla. It baked up perfectly in 55 minutes. I did a glaze for it (not necessary...

This is really good!!! I think it is more like cake than bread. You could probably drizzle icing on it too. I made only one change to the recipe by adding some more poppy seeds. This recipe i...

***My suggestions for beginning bakers, preheat the oven before mixing anything; do not over mix the batter because the bread will turn out tough; wait the 10 minutes before taking the bread ou...

Quick, easy and delicious! My modifications: triple the amount of poppy seeds and add a half teaspoon of lemon extract (or orange, or use fresh citrus zest). This will definitely be a repeat re...

My husband, son and I enjoyed this poppy seed bread very much. I used plain soy milk instead of regular milk to make the recipe lactose free. I cut down the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and used twice a...

The flavour in this is phenomenal! I made half a batch (one loaf). It is more like a cake than a loaf though. Very sweet and with a nice soft texture. I doubled the poppy seeds. When I make...

The pairing of almond and butter extract in this bread is amazing! I increased the poppy seeds to 1/4C. It baked to a nice golden brown in one hour. Very good sweet quick bread! Thx.

DELICIOUS! I literally had to force myself to stop eating this bread! I made a few loaves to send to friends overseas. I know they're gonna love it! This is one recipe I'm adding to my holiday b...

I made mini loaves and muffins and they were a hit . I did double the poppy seeds. I will be using this recipe again and again. As mentioned, it is cake-like. Great recipe, thanks!
