Cheryl's Poppy Seed Bread with Glaze

Cheryl's Poppy Seed Bread with Glaze created by Dixie from Kansas

This delicious quick bread recipe is very moist and very sweet- more like a cake than a bread. A former neighbor of mine shared this recipe with me after we received a loaf as a holiday gift. Thank you Cheryl!

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  • Grease and flour two regular size loaf pans.
  • Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and whisk together.
  • In another bowl, combine sugar, eggs, and oil.
  • Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk into the egg mixture, mixing between each addition by hand.
  • Stir in poppyseeds (yes, it really is 1 1/2 Tbsp) and flavorings.
  • Pour into prepared loaf pans and bake at 350 F for 1 hour, or until cake tests done (you may need another 15 minutes baking time).
  • When baked, set the loaf pans on a rack (leaving loaves in pans).
  • Combine glaze ingredients and pour all over the still warm loaves (if you like, poke holes in the surface with a skewer before pouring glaze so that it leaks into the bread).
  • The center of the bread will be very, very moist- almost wet from the glaze.

    I make this same bread but mine calls for 2 tablespoons poppy seeds. Recipes were almost exact except for that. This bread is SO GOOD. I have made it a lot. Great recipe, thank you for posting.

    This is great bread. My recipe also calls for 1 1/8 cup oil and other than that I followed the recipe exact. It made 7 mini loaves when filled 2/3 full and took 35 min to bake. I poked holes in the top with a toothpick and poured on glaze after it cooled 10 min. Perfect bread..light, sweet, great. Everyone should try this.

    I was going to post a similar recipe, but found it's already here. My only difference is I use 1 1/8 c oil rather than 1 1/4. And I use granulated sugar in the glaze, not powdered. Not big differences. This is my ultimate favorite poppy seed bread recipe -- and I tried a few before trying this recipe. I usually make 5 mini-loaves, baked for about 35 min, rather than big loaves. The glaze really "makes" it!

    This looked and smelled good, but seemed a little too 'eggy' for me. I even recounted my shells to be sure I didn't use too many. It tasted good, but didn't knock my socks off.
