This a delicious quick bread that has a cake-like texture. The flavor is so good and it's so easy to put together. I got this recipe from Zora who was the bakery manager of a grocery store that I had worked at.

Oh yah!!! You gotta try this one. It is the simplest thing to make and was a hit with everyone who was allowed near it. I have to send the recipe to 3 people. It definately tastes more like cake than bread, but when its this good, who cares what you call it. Thanks sooo much Michelle!!

I have the same recipe only I use a yellow cake mix and vanilla pudding, along with 1/4 c. of poppy seeds rather than just 2T. I don't use any lemon extract. I also bake in three mini loaf pans for 35 min. and they turn out wonderfully. This is a fabulous bread for customizing to your own tastes.

This turned out great! Very easy and lemony. I loved the smell when it was baking. I couldn't get any coconut cream pudding so just used a lemon cake mix. Thanks so much!! Going in the keeper file.
