This soft yellow bread is reminiscent of your favorite poppy seed muffin, but versatile enough to take you from breakfast to dessert. Spread it with Cheesy Lemon spread if you wish. Since I did not have dried lemon peel I left it out and I had just plain yogurt and to it I added a tsp. of lemon juice and left out lemon extract because I had none. I also used 2 tsp. fast rise yeast for the regular loaf. Very nice and fluffy bread.

Directions

  1. FOR THE CHEESY LEMON SPREAD: In heavy pan mix eggs, juice, butter, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil while stirring over low heat, then cook 3 minutes more.
  2. Beat cream cheese and lemon peel in another bowl.
  3. When egg mixture is COOL, blend into cheese until smooth and store in refrigerator.
  4. Success Hints: Toast almonds lightly in a shallow pan. Stirring frequently, bake at 350 for five minutes or until golden brown. I just toasted mine in the microwave for a couple of minutes.
  5. For a luscious dessert bread, serve with the Cheesy Lemon spread.
  6. This recipe can be made with the regular and rapid bake cycles.
