Found this on allrecipes website. The other poppy seed bread recipes here use baking powder -- this one uses baking soda. It comes out very, very moist and is easy to mix together! This makes 2 loaves but you can easily cut it down to 1 loaf.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Spray Pam and flour two 9x5 loaf pans.
  3. Mix the first 4 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add vanilla, milk, eggs and oil. Beat for 5 minutes with an electric mixer. Stir in the poppy seeds. Pour batter into loaf pans.
  4. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on wire racks.

I love this bread, it's so delicious! My photo makes it look almost "wet" inside but it's really not. Just very moist along with the fact that I HAD to cut into it 15 minutes out of the oven. Now I have to go hide the rest of it from myself so I don't eat 1/2 a loaf in one sitting! Thanks for sharing the recipe Nemokitty, made for Pick-A-Chef Fall 2011.

This is a fabulously moist poppy seed bread. I did easily halve this recipe for only one loaf and it baked up perfectly. It had a nice crown on the bread but not too high which was nice. Just absolutely perfect. We so enjoyed every bite (and quickly I might add!). Thanks for sharing this in the Newest Zaar Tag Game. :)

Made this recipe as given (Well, actually I used a nicely rounded measure of the poppy seeds!) & the loaves turned out just great! I kept one for the 2 of us & gifted the other to a couple of very appreciative friends! Absolutely wonderful in every respect, & this is yet another very nice recipe for me to keep around! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
