Lemon Poppyseed Bread

This bread has the perfect balance of flavors! It’s one of my family’s favorites! The tangy lemon flavor is balanced with a sweet glaze that’s poured on the top. It’s easy to make!


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cup flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Zest of one lemon and its juice 
  • 1/4 cup poppy seeds
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Mix sugar, eggs and butter. 
  3. Add in flour, salt and baking powder. Mix well. 
  4. Add in milk and mix well. 
  5. Add in poppy seeds and lemon zest. Mix well. 
  6. Pour batter in a greased 9″ by 5″ loaf pan. 
  7. Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. 
  8. Let the bread cool in the pan for 5 minutes before popping it out. 
  9. Mix together lemon juice and confectioners’ sugar to make a glaze. Remove the bread from the pan. Pour the glaze over the warm bread (make sure you poke holes in the bread first so it can absorb more of this delicious glaze).
