Poppy Seed Lemon Loaves

These light golden loaves have just a hint of almond flavor mixed in with the lemon.


10 servings


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup granulated (white) sugar
2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon lemon peel
2/3 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 egg yolk, beaten
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease two 5 x 3 x 2-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking soda and lemon peel. Combine the remaining ingredients; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon into prepared loaf pans.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire cooling racks.
