Lemon Almond Poppy Seed Bread


Not too long ago, one of my friends gave us a loaf of lemon almond poppy seed bread. It was so delicious...it was gone before I knew it!

I needed to make something for company coming, and thought about how good that bread was. But I didn't have time to get the recipe from my friend, so I found this one from Taste of Home. 


We loved it! 

I made 4 mini loaves, and froze 3 of them. I didn't add a glaze, and they were still very sweet and SO moist. Maybe next time I will try the glaze, as it does sound tasty!
