Recipe by Snicklefritzie

We discovered this recipe at a baby shower years ago. It is a favorite at the holidays and anytime. You can make it in a Bundt pan or 2 loaf pans, one to keep and one to share!

Wonderful flavor combo! I love lemon poppyseed stuff so thought I'd try this. Not a mistake on my part by any means, altho next time I may add more poppy seed and also double the glaze.
