Quick Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
So easy that I'm not sure it even qualifies as baking, and very, very good. The only change I made to the recipe was to add a tsp of lemon extract. Next time, I think I'll add some lemon zest, too, and maybe a lemon glaze (I like my lemon bread to be nice and tart). I did have to cook this for about 15 minutes longer than the listed time, though that may be my oven. This recipe shot to the top of my "quick, easy, and amazing" list, the kind of thing you can whip up almost any day, no matter how hectic. Both loaves went so fast that I hardly had time to snag a piece for myself before it was gone.

Peach Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
This was very good, but a bit heavy on the oil. The only changes I made were to use chopped spiced peaches instead of plain, and a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and ginger instead of just cinnamon. The batter was very thick, like cookie dough, so I added a little of the peach juice. I wasn't too impressed right after I baked this, but after it sat for a day it became very moist and flavorful. It didn't taste oily, but after I ate it, I could feel it sitting heavy in my stomach almost like fried food does. This was a big hit at church, so I'll make it again, though I'll definitely cut the oil in half and use applesauce or baby food instead.
