I Found It!! Lemon Blueberry Poppy Seed Bread

This recipe was talked about on my Facebook Fan Page. Poppy seeds or no poppy seeds? Well, poppy seeds won.....

And then I had to make the announcement that I lost my "chicken scratch recipe", because I thought I threw it away, and I thought the bread was already posted to my blog. Do you remember that?

Low and behold....I found the recipe buried deep in the mess on my desk. I really need to set some goals for myself and become a little more organized. Notice how I used the word "little"? I need a filing system or something......

I spent one whole day digging through bags of trash for this recipe that I thought I threw away, with no luck at finding it.....digging through old potato peels, egg shells, and left-over pizza that sat so long it dried out was not fun......But I am dedicated to my fans, and if dumpster diving is involved, I will do it!

Maybe I should rename this recipe? "From The Depths Of My Desk Lemon Blueberry Poppy Seed Bread"

Lemon Blueberry Poppy Seed Bread

1/3 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. Domino Light sugar blend
3 TBS lemon juice
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. bread flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. buttermilk
Zest of 3 lemons
1 TBS poppy seeds
1 pint fresh blueberries

1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 TBS lemon juice
1 tsp. butter, melted
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

*NOTE: I zested my three lemons into a bowl, and then squeezed the juice out of them into another. The three lemons gave enough juice for entire recipe.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and lemon juice.
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into egg mixture alternately with buttermilk; beating well after each addition.
Fold in lemon zest, poppy seeds, and blueberries.
Pour into a greased 8x4 loaf pan. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm bread. Cool completely.



  1. I'm not a big fan of blueberries having grown up in blueberry country, but I think this is one recipe I'll save for the season! It sounds like a wonderful combination of flavours!
    PS: Don't feel bad about your desk... I clean mine up, and not two days later it looks just as it did before! LOL

  2. Oh Gal - wish I had time to come over and help you gobble up this amazing combo of flavors. I have done the very same's so easy to 'lose' something in the pile....only to discover it later. I can relate all too well.


I look forward to and appreciate any comments.
Thank you for stopping by.
