"This was one of those recipe's that my grandma said no one would ever have and she refused to give it out. I feel that no recipe should be kept secret! But after she moved I found her recipe for this sitting in the pantry under our flour container. (not sure if she did it on purpose or by mistake) She used to make these as a "stocking stuffer" and passed them out to EVERYONE! This was one of the FEW things she knew how to make well. I think this would be good to cut into slices and serve with other goodies at parties for the holidays."

"I have made this for years. I found the recipe on a Duncan Hines cake mix box. They called it a pound cake. It did not have the poppy seed in it, and said to bake in a tube pan. We would glaze it with just a simple glaze made from icing/powdered sugar & lemon juice poured over it on the serving plate. Try this using a chocolate cake mix & instant chocolate fudge pudding. It makes a great moist chocolate pound cake."
"Love...Love...Love this recipe. So easy to make and so moist. Will be making it again and again. Thanks for Sharing"
"This was excellent. I love anything baked with lemon and poppy seeds. will be making again thanks"
"These were wonderful to serve at Easter Dinner....Very moist and easy to make."
"I got rave reviews for this recipe! I made 4 mini loaves with this recipe, I think next time I will make 5 so that the loaves are not oversized. Also I'm going to bake these at 325 degree next time instead of 350 to prevent my loaves from over browning on top. One thing to note, when making this pay attention to the quantity of pudding mixes to ensure your have enough on hand. I ended up using two small packages of lemon pudding and I had to use a small french vanilla because of not paying attention to this. :) I will definately be making this again in the future. Thank you for the very easy & tasty recipe!!"
"It is so simple great for the beginner cook and tasty yummmy I made 2 small loaf and cooked it at 325 instead od 350 so they would not burn to cook all the way through. Moist and tasty I took the advise of the other Review to add zest from 1 lemon it is awsome and I recomend the Zest it gives it extra lemon taste , Thanks for this super easy tasty receipie"
"These little loaves are wonderful! My bread pans must have been a bit bigger as I only got 4 loaves out of it but they baked so nicely. DH nibbled away almost an entire loaf the day I made it, I shared one with my lemon poppyseed lover daughter and froze one to see how they worked in the freezer. I will be making these for Christmas this year! Thanks for sharing! Made for Fall PAC 2009"
"These were very easy to make and have a light flavor. The loaves came out perfectly! Even my DH who is a chocoholic liked them!! Made for Spring 2009 PAC."
"I made this and added the zest of one lemon. Gave it a bit more tang. This is a moist bread and quite good."
"I made these to give away at christmas time. They were a huge hit. My husband couldnt keep his hands out of my stockpile that I had made to give away. They were moist and stayed that way until all were gone. Ill be making these again. Thanks for posting"
"This extremely easy recipe yields some extremely tasty and attractive lemon poppyseed bread! I first tried the recipe when going to a potluck dinner party, and it was a huge hit. The bread is rich and very lemony, and there are just the right amount of poppy seeds. I've also used this recipe many times when called upon to donate to bakesales. The small loaves can be sold for more money than cupcakes, but they are much easier to make. The bread is great when served after dinner (as a light dessert) with coffee or tea."
