I LOVE Poppy Seed Breads and this was no exception! I cut the recipe in half and used lemon extract in place of the butter extract and added some lemon zest to heighten the lemon flavor. For the glaze I subbed lemon juice for the orange juice. It smelled wonderful while it baked and tasted even better. Perfect with a cup of tea! Read More

I made it for my church's bible school-it was a hit!! My oven browned the sides too quickly so I'll try 325 F next go-around. I added a few drops of almond extract to the glaze as well. Delicious! Read More

Good and scrumptious - everyone in the house enjoyed it. I've made it twice so far once with the glaze and once without. I preferred without as the glaze made the bread a little soggy and made it fall apart easier. Read More
