Reviews for Lemon Poppy Seed Bread
"This bread is very moist and easy to make. Next time I will add a bit of lemon extract as well. I also drizzled them with a powdered sugar glaze which was perfect!"
"Yes, this was easy and moist. We thought it lacked a bit of lemon flavor. Next time we will add 1/2 teaspoon of lemon extract.We also made a banana bread and strawberry bread and my family all thought the lemon bread was the driest.Not sure yet if we have found the BEST lemon poppy seed bread recipe yet."
"wonderful and moist, so easy to make.my co workers loved it"
"I absolutely loved this bread! I added a little powdered sugar icing to it ... yum! Thanks! This is a keeper!"
"I made this today and was disappointed. I used lemon cake mix, and substituted 1/4 c. lemon juice for part of the water, and it tasted o.k, but the loaves don't rise very high, like a quick bread should. I'm still looking for a good recipe. So far, Pillsbury's mix is the best I've found. Disappointing!"
"I baked this recipe in pint jars and sealed them. I used them as gifts for my daughter's bridal shower. I will use this recipe again. It's delicious!"
"I also use lemon cake mix."
"If you are used to "made from scratch" breads... this one is disappointing. It is OK... but the cake mix flavor and texture is definitely there. won't bake again."
"I also used lemon cake mix. This bread/cake is delicious."
"This recipe is great...I used the white cake mix the first time I made it and then used a box of lemon cake mix the second time...even better!!!!"
"Making this my third time right now. It makes great mini loaves to give as gifts, just take about 5-7 min off the cook time."
"OMGoodness ~ this bread is wonderfully moist and lemony. A definite keeper!!!"
"This was a great recipe, I was hesitant to make a "bread" that wasn't made from scrach. But this was wonderful, even my husband liked it..(and he said he doesn't like lemon poppy anything) I did add 1/2 of lemon juice to the mixture ans made a frosting to drizzle on top.. 1/2 of a lemon and powdered sugar."
"I had to use a yellow cake mix because that was all that was available to me, but it still turned out very yummy! I added some lemon juice to it to give it more lemon flavor (which I may not have needed if I had white cake mix on hand)"
"It was very quick and easy, but it wasn't very lemony and had a funny aftere taste. It was fine, but I don't think I would make it again. Should have used my moms recipe instead."
"Easy to make and very delicious, everyone in my family loves it!"
"This recipe is fantastic and comes out great every time. It's so moist, you can't miss with it."
"I love this soft, moist bread. Since this recipe makes two I often freeze one. It freezes very well wrapped in foil. My husband likes icing so I make it using powdered sugar, milk and a dab of lemon extract. Mmmm"
"Make this even better by using a lemon cake mix! Absolutely delicious!"
"Really quick and easy to make, and delicious! I'll use this recipe often."
"so super easy and tasty!!!"
"delicious bread, yum!!!"
