"This poppy seed bread is one of the best ever. If you have ever tasted poppy seed muffins, this is just as good! It is also very simple."

1 1/2 cups
The flavor was nice, but it was on the dry side. I used 1/2 t. vanilla extract and 1/2 t. lemon extract instead of 1 full t. of vanilla. I sure hope that didn't affect the moistness of the bread.
The list of ingredients for this recipe is very good and produces a very nice tasting quick bread that we all enjoyed. However , I would not recommend following the directions by beating all the ingredients together in a bowl for 5 minutes with an electric mixer. Excessive mixing will cause the overdevelopment of gluten and make the bread tough instead of tender.. INSTEAD… Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ones (Only when each bowl of ingredients is mixed thoroughly ) and fold them together gently until just combined. Do this part by hand rather than with a mixer. The end result will be a nice sweet, tender quick bread. THX
This recipe can be used for muffins - bake about 23 minutes. They turned out very moist and so easy. I just threw everything together, except poppy seeds, in a medium bowl and blended. I added 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, reduced oil to 3/4 cup, and added 3/4 cup apple sauce. Thanks for the recipe!!
Very good, easy bread. It turned out very moist.
This was just heaven! my family used to go to a certain restaraunt when visiting our grandparents, and the thing we always looked forward to was the poppyseed bread they gave as an appetizer. THis tastes exactly the same, delicious, and i even had to use a regular glass pan as we didn't have the correct pans, and it still turned out perfect same cook time and everything. But what hit me the most is how simple it is to make it.
This was great! Very simple to make and it turned out so moist and yummy!
I don't have a mixer, but it came out fine when I stirred it by hand.
The baking time for this is too long - I baked mine for a little less than 50 minutes and it was slightly overdone. Next time I'll shorten it to 40 - 45 minutes. But, other than that, this bread is very delicious, with or without spreading butter on it.
