I'm not sure where this recipe came from originally, my family has been making it for as long as I can remember. This is more like a loaf-shaped cake than a bread, but is delicious!


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix all ingredients together and pour into greased loaf pan.
  3. Bake about 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

This recipe makes a really nice quick bread. The pudding really helps to make it moist and flavorful. I did not add the poppy seeds as DH doesn't care for them, but I don't think it takes away from the overall taste - just the look of the bread. Will definitely make again. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2014.

Very nice 'bread' even if I did include a quarter cup of chopped pistachio nuts (along with the other ingredients)! As per a previous reviewer, I initially poured the batter into 2 smaller 8" loaf pans, but felt they'd be way too small so ended up with my large I did bake it in a 9"x5" loaf pan & that worked just fine! We really enjoyed the flavor combo in this loaf! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in the current Pick A Chef]
