I hope you’re obsessed with all things lemon like I am. I’ve been making all things lemon lately – from chicken piccata, lemonade (including a lemon simple syrup!), muffins, using them in marinades, etc. I have been swimming in lemon and I’ve been loving every minute of it.
Naturally, when you’re making allthelemon things, you’d think lemon poppyseed bread which is why this fabulous gluten free lemon poppyseed bread was born. Well, baked if you want to get literal.
This gluten free lemon poppy seed bread is full of lemon flavor. There’s a ton of fresh lemon juice and zest in the batter and then it’s topped off with the most fabulous lemon glaze.
I don’t often top my quick breads with glaze because it’s really just an option and I don’t always want that extra sugar for breakfast. You can totally for-go the glaze but if you’re looking for that something special, go for the glaze! Go big or go home right?
With the glaze, this bread would make a great afternoon snack or with tea if you’re into afternoon tea. You could also get away with serving this for dessert with some vanilla ice cream and call it a lemon pound cake without all the extra eggs and butter you would typically make a pound cake with. Oh versatile poppy seed bread, I love you so.
This version I’m sharing today is not only gluten free, it’s dairy free as well. If you do not need a dairy free version, just use regular milk in place of the coconut).
So not only is this a recipe that you can serve any time day or night, it’s pretty forgiving as far as ingredients go. I even cut back a bit on the oil in this recipe because I find that recipes with lots of lemon juice and/or zest get a tad bit greasy if you use the same amount you’re used to in other quick bread recipes.
