“This delicious quick bread recipe is very moist and very sweet- more like a cake than a bread. A former neighbor of mine shared this recipe with me after we received a loaf as a holiday gift. Thank you Cheryl!”
1hr 15mins
2 loaves quick bread

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  2. Grease and flour two regular size loaf pans.
  3. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and whisk together.
  4. In another bowl, combine sugar, eggs, and oil.
  5. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk into the egg mixture, mixing between each addition by hand.
  6. Stir in poppyseeds (yes, it really is 1 1/2 Tbsp) and flavorings.
  7. Pour into prepared loaf pans and bake at 350 F for 1 hour, or until cake tests done (you may need another 15 minutes baking time).
  8. When baked, set the loaf pans on a rack (leaving loaves in pans).
  9. Combine glaze ingredients and pour all over the still warm loaves (if you like, poke holes in the surface with a skewer before pouring glaze so that it leaks into the bread).
  10. The center of the bread will be very, very moist- almost wet from the glaze.
