Step 1: Ingredients

Ingredients: (makes 1 loaf)

1 ¾ cups all purpose flour

3 tablespoons poppy seeds

½ teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

½ cup vegetable oil

3 eggs

⅔ cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

½ cup yogurt

¼ cup milk

Juice from 1 large lemon

Zest from 2 lemons


Juice from 2 lemons

1 cup confectioner’s sugar

Step 2: Prep

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a standard loaf pan with nonstick spray.

Step 3: Dry

In a medium bowl, combine flour, poppy seeds, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.

Step 4: Wet

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine oil, sugar, mixing well. Add eggs, mixing again until completely incorporated. Add lemon juice, zest, vanilla, yogurt, and milk, and mix until combined.

Step 5: Combine Them

Add flour mixture gradually to the wet mixture in the stand mixer, mixing until combined.

Step 6: Bake It

Once combined, pour into the greased loaf pan, and bake in preheated oven for 50+ minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Take out of oven and cool.

Step 7: Ice It

Once cool, whip up the icing (juice from 2 lemons + confectioners sugar) in a small bowl. Adjust confectioners sugar accordingly with how much juice you have.

Drizzle icing over loaf and cut into pieces before serving.
