      What a great tasting loaf ~ Really enjoyed the combo of lemon & poppy seed & was generous when measuring both seeds & zest! This is definitely a keeper recipe for me, & I'll be making it from time to time throughout the year! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      I made these as muffins and baked at 350 deg. for 20 min. I will not use muffin liners next time as I lost most of the glaze to the bottom of the pan. Perhaps the loaf is the best solution. Loved them.

      As the previous reviewer stated and I second it....if you like lemon'll love this recipe. I made mine into 12 muffins instead of a loaf. Followed your recipe exactly as written including letting the syrup filled muffins sit for 1/2 hour b/f removing to a cooling rack. A really sweet/tart tasting goodie:-) Made to honor Kat in Veg-n-swap July '09.
