Lemon Poppy Seed Amish Friendship Bread Recipe Is a Lusciously Lemon Take on the Classic

Two of my favorite ingredients are lemon and poppy seeds. I love just about everything lemon – lemonade, lemon shortbread, lemon bars, lemon cheesecake, lemon meringue pie, lemon pudding, vodka with lemonade(!), lemon squeezed in my water and soda. I think lemon makes most things better.

My love of poppy seeds comes from my childhood – poppy seed bagels and poppy pastries from a local bakery, to be precise. Lemon poppy seed bread is, then, the perfect dessert bread for me.

This Amish friendship bread recipe is a zesty, lemon-y take on the classic Amish friendship bread. I highly recommend it!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes
Servings: Makes 2 loaves


Here's how to make it:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, blend together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, poppy seeds and lemon pudding mix.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the Amish starter, eggs, milk, applesauce, vanilla and vegetable oil. Add to dry ingredients and blend until just combined.
  3. Spray two 9-inch loaf pans with cooking spray and pour half the batter into each. Bake in a preheated 325-degree F oven for 1 hour. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Remove bread from pans and serve.

Notes: Feel free to use mini loaf pans as an alternative. These bread loaves, at any size, make great gifts! To make muffins, pour 3 tablespoons into greased muffin tins and reduce cooking time to approximately 23 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees F.
