We’re into summer now but I’m still enjoying this spring treat. And really, who says we can’t eat Lemon Poppy Seed Cake all year anyway?
Of course, I’m a sucker for lemon flavored desserts (hehehe, but no seriously, I am).
That’s why I’ve made things like:
and even Lemon Scented Play Dough
However, I recently realized that I’d never actually made my own lemon poppy seed bread or muffins. So I went on a search.
Often I like to play around with food and develop my own recipes, but in this case I found one that I really loved, so the only actual change I made was doubling (okay, maybe it was double-and-a-halving) the icing.
I know the photos look all crumbly, moist, and delicious but, oh my, I wish you could smell it! Yum.
Look at all those incredible ingredients coming together.
And then you pull this gorgeous creation out of the oven…
I actually had some waxed paper under that while I drizzled the icing allllll over it. (Just a tip. Much easier to clean.)
Gorgeous, no? Yes.
The recipe is Lemon Poppy Seed Bread from Sally’s Baking Addiction. If you’re a fan of lemon breads and desserts like me, I recommend checking it out!
Okay, can’t stop looking at the pretty bread. One more pic…
If you have any other lemon treats you enjoy and recommend, I’d love to hear about it!
