Glazed Poppy Seed Bread Recipe

Sweet, tender quick breads are a favorite of most bakers, but Joanne Jones of Salisbury, Maryland had a special request regarding her Poppy Seed Bread. “A lot of my co-workers and I are on Weight Watchers and would like to calculate how many points it has. Better yet,” she adds, “could you do a makeover on this recipe?”
