Hi Bombshell Bling readers! My name is Jesseca and I am so excited to be the new food contributor here! You can check out a little more about me over on my site One Sweet Appetite and find more delicious recipes like the one below! But enough about me… Let’s get on to the good stuff! I have a serious love for citrus desserts. Especially lemon. This lemon poppy seed bread is high on the list of family favorites. It’s easy to make and almost a ‘cheater’ recipe using a cake mix base.
I am such a big fan of cake mix altered recipes. It takes the guess work out of baking and makes it extremely easy to whip together delicious treats! My home was filled with the most amazing lemon aroma while these were in the oven. While you should wait to slice until the bread is cool, temptation won me over and we spread a little butter onto a warm piece for a little taste test. So amazing. The poppy seeds add a fun little pop of flavor but the lemon is the true star of the show.
- 1 package lemon cake mix
- 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant lemon pudding
- 1 cup water
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup canola oil
- 4 teaspoons poppy seeds
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease the inside of two bread pans. Set aside for later.
- Mix together the cake mix, lemon pudding mix, water, eggs and oil.
- Fold in the poppy seeds until combined.
- Divide between your two cake pans and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Hopefully you all love the recipe! I’m excited to be here on a regular basis and can’t wait to share some other great recipes!
