Poppy Seed Blueberry Bread

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling


2 mini loaves (5 slices each)

"This was the first bread I made that my husband said was a 'keeper'," relates Jennifer Miller of Avon, Indiana. Poppy seeds and lemon peel perk up the flavor of these moist mini loaves while drizzled glaze sweetens their tops.


  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) blueberry muffin mix
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Drain and rinse blueberries from muffin mix; set aside. In a bowl, combine the muffin mix, egg, water, oil, poppy seeds and lemon zest just until blended. Fold in blueberries. Spread into two greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans.
  2. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
  3. In a small bowl, combine confectioner's sugar and enough lemon juice to achieve desired consistency; drizzle over warm loaves.
