Almond Poppyseed Bread #BreadBakers

This month's Bread Bakers is being hosted by Mayuri of Mayuri's Jikoni.  Mayuri asked us to make a bread containing seeds.  She then shared that botanically seeds include cereals, legumes, nuts, cocoa beans and coffee beans.  Who knew?  Mayuri....that's who.

I decided to share a quick bread that contained Poppy Seeds.  It also contains almond extract so I guess that means it double qualifies if nuts are considered seeds.

I like this recipe because it only makes one loaf.  I know, I know....quick bread freezes beautifully so it shouldn't matter if I make more than one loaf.  That is assuming that I have any will power, which I don't.  It is safer for me just to make one loaf of something this delicious.  Then I am not tempted to keep eating until there is nothing left but the crumbs.

This bread certainly didn't last long.  I served it up with coffee on the first day that the carpenter came to work on our remodel.  He had 2 pieces with his coffee in the morning and then another piece after lunch. I think he liked it.

Yield: 1 loaf

Almond Poppyseed Bread

This quick and easy sweet bread has a tender crumb and an amazing flavor profile. It is perfect with your morning cup of coffee or as a dessert after lunch or dinner.
prep time: 15 MINScook time: 1 hourtotal time: 1 hours and 15 mins


1 c. + 2 T. sugar
1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 T. poppy seeds
1 t. lemon juice
1 t. almond extract
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 c. flour
3/4 t. baking powder
pinch of salt
3/4 c. milk


Place the sugar, oil, eggs, poppy seeds, lemon, almond extract and vanilla into the large bowl of stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment.  Beat until well blended.

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt.  With the mixer on low, alternately add the flour mixture and the milk to the sugar mixture, beating  just until completely moistened.

Pour into a 8x4" loaf pan that has been treated with baking spray.  

Bake in a preheated 350* oven for 50-60 minutes, until a skewer inserted removes cleanly.

Tent with aluminum foil if the bread starts to brown too much.

  1. This bread looks so good, no wonder the carpenter enjoyed it.

  2. Sounds like you have one happy carpenter!

    1. I hope so Karen because we are very happy with him and the work he is doing.

  3. The bread looks so delicious...your carpenter gave you the true feedback that it taste nice

  4. Mmm, it looks really tasty. I like the idea of almond and poppy seed together.

  5. That is such a soft and delicious looking bread. Love the addition of poppy seeds. Almond extract must have added nice flavor.

  6. Delicious looking bread, if you would have made more am sure the carpenter would have had more! Though one can't get any flavor from poppy seeds, I like the bite they add to any baked goodie.

    1. Yes the texture and the visual appeal of the poppy seed against the lemony yellow of the cake is wonderful.
