In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking soda and lemon zest. Combine the remaining ingredients; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon into two greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
Editor's Note:The baked bread may be frozen for up to 2 months.
