This Lemon Poppyseed Loaf is a soft and delicious cake. Or is it bread? I think bread is technically correct but cake is better if you ask me. 😉 Either way, it would be perfect for dessert, but also great for breakfast or a snack.
Well, for better or worse, it's Spring and I love, love, love a lemony recipe when the weather starts to warm up! I can't explain why, but the light, sweet and tart combo just feels like the world is coming alive.
And right now, I can use all the light and bright and lemon I can get my hands on.
If you've been reading my blog for any time at all, you probably know that I usually hate summertime. I hate the heat and humidity. I can't stand the bugs, the sun(burn), the beach and/or sand... it's just not my thing. None of it.
But this year - in the midst of this crazy sci-fi moving we're living in? Bring on spring and summertime! And bring on the lemony desserts.
