Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 25 min.


3 loaves

Each Christmas, I make plates of goodies for the neighbors. I try to include a few items that aren't as sweet as traditional cookies and candies— these mini loaves really fit the bill! —Mrs. Richard Bridges, Absarokee, Montana


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract


  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, poppy seeds, zest and baking soda. Combine remaining ingredients; stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Spoon into three greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans.
  2. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on wire racks.
