DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Coat 2 (8 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 2 1/2") loaf pans with butter-flavored cooking spray.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, (I use my kitchen aid one), cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs one at a time. Scrape sides and bottom every so often with a rubber spatula.
  • Add the lemon juice, lemon rind and vanilla and beat until combined.
  • In another bowl, combine the flour, poppy seeds, baking powder and salt. I usually just mix this well with a whisk to combine evenly.
  • Add to the egg mixture and stir until just moistened.
  • Divide the batter between the 2 prepared pans.
  • Bake about 1 hour, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes.
  • Invert onto wire racks.
  • Cool further til wrappable with plastic wrap without any steam. Wrap tightly to keep fresh and moist.
