WOW, this makes for a lovely bread loaf!!! It is moist and fluffy on the inside and has a great crunchy crust. The vanilla and poppy seed flavours go so well together and make for a really special treat! I made only half the recipe and used my mini loaf pan, which resulted in a cute little bread. :) The small loaf baked through in 40 minutes. I cut the sugar back to a 1/4 cup for half the recipe, so that my bread wasnt overly sweet. What a perfect treat, Annacia! I will surely make it again and am thinking about giving it to friends and family as a holiday gift. Made and reviewed for Gimme 5 Tag Game November 09.

Lousy bread mix but great pancake batter. Sorry, but the consistency on this bread was not to our liking; too dense and rubbery. Fortunately, there were many similarities between this mix and my pancake recipe so I was able to convert it with minimal changes and the results were outstanding! Poppy seed pancakes are now the way to go every Saturday morning in my household.

This had a nice crust and soft interior. Not too sweet, but I will double vanilla next time, as it wasn't quite enough flavor for me (personal taste :) ) Also will try as muffins. I made the diabetic version. Thanks for posting.
