This Poppyseed Bread is the perfect dessert to share! Each bite is pure bliss! It’s cake-like and soft with a delicious orange juice-infused glaze. Everyone is sure to enjoy it!
When I think of Poppyseed Bread, I think of baby showers, wedding showers and backyard potlucks. I love to make desserts like this when I’m asked to bring something to a gathering. You can cut each slice in half to make it go further, so the two loaves feed and please a crowd!
Often poppyseed bread is associated with lemon flavor, but this has no lemon in it. Trust me, it doesn’t need the lemon flavor. It totally stands on its own! The almond and butter flavoring inside, coupled with the orange juice glaze, make this bread an absolute delight for the taste buds!
This tastes like it’s from your favorite bakery! I love dessert breads, don’t you? I don’t think I could ever tire of eating this Snickerdoodle Bread, this Double Chocolate Pumpkin Bread, this Banana Zucchini Bread, or this Chocolate Banana Bread. All are contenders for my top favorite sweet bread!
With this bread and all cake-like desserts, it’s especially important to bake them just until done, but no longer. Excess time in the oven will dry it out. To prevent over-baking, test often by inserting a toothpick in the center often towards the end of the time window. You’ll know it’s done when moist crumbs, but not gooey batter, are seen on the toothpick. If the top of the bread is starting to brown too much, cover the loaf pans with foil.
I’m obsessed with this Poppyseed Bread! I haven’t made it in awhile, and my 5 year old was concerned by what the “black things” were in it. 🙂 But then he took that first daring bite and was instantly all smiles! This sweet bread is absolutely delightful! I know you’re going to love it too!
For all those upcoming summer BBQ’s and potlucks, look no further for the perfect dessert to share! This is it! Everyone will rave about it! If you love cake-like treats, you’ll also want to make this Chocoholic Bundt Cake, this Southern Pound Cake and this Lemon-Raspberry Bundt Cake.
Happy spring and summer! I hope you get to enjoy this perfect Poppyseed Bread soon!
