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!!!!"
