Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf

When I have the time, and when I'm in the mood, I love to bake. This lemon poppy seed loaf is a favourite of mine. This time of year, there's something about lemon-y things. Tasty, fresh, and sunny. That's why this lemon loaf is the perfect thing to bake this spring (or pretty much anytime).

It really doesn't take too long to whip up at all; and it's perfect for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (I kid). Oh, and of course it goes good with coffee. It never lasts too long in our house. 


6 1/2 tbsp of Butter (softened)
1 Cup of Sugar
2 Eggs
Zest of 1 Lemon
1 tsp Lemon Juice
1/2 Cup Milk
1 1/4 Cups of Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Poppy Seeds
