Lemon Poppy Seed Bread


Easter is just a few weeks away and if you’re looking for a great addition to any Easter brunch menu this could be it.  This bread is wonderfully lemony as is, but you could also turn the same batter into muffins perfect for individual portions.  A versatile recipe is certainly one any cook should have in their repertoire.

6 tbs canola oil
2 eggs or egg substitute
