Moistest Lemon Poppy Seed Bread You Will Ever Eat!

“There really is no better Sunday breakfast than lemon poppyseed bread, Mom. Or anyday. It makes me so excited when we have it. It’s so good!” my elementary aged daughter exclaims. Everything lately in her world is filled with exclamation points behind it. She’s always excited about something, or thinking something is “the coolest, or the best,  ever!”

But lemon poppyseed bread? She gets down right ecstatic about it! we’ve tried a few recipes in recent days, and haven’t been able to find any really good ones. Too dry, not enough lemon, or just not great tasting.

But this loaf….this loaf was perfect!!

I used yogurt to reduce calories and white whole wheat flour/all purpose flour combination to increase the amount of nutrients in the bread. It is a delicious healthy recipe! You won’t regret trying this perfect loaf of lemon poppy seed bread.

Moistest Lemon Poppy Seed Bread You Will Ever Eat!

Yield: 2 loaves

The moistest lemon poppyseed bread you will ever try. It's so delicious that you won't even know it's good for you!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup unbleached all pupose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (if no applesauce, you can use an additional 1/4 cup butter)
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 eggs (can use an egg replacer like Ener-G if desired)
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup lemon yogurt
  • 4 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup poppyseeds

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or oil two loaf pans.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients–flour, salt, baking soda, poppyseed and lemon zest.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add in applesauce, eggs, and yogurt and mix until well combined, stopping to scrape the bowl occasionally. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients until just incorporated. Divide the batter in half, smooth the tops and place in loaf pans.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Tops of the loaves will brown lightly, and a knife inserted into the center of the loaf will come out clean. Take pans out of the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before inverting onto cooling racks.
