It's been a while!!

Finally a new post!!! I had some leftover lemons and decided to make some lemon poppy seed bread. Tastes great!!

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoons poppy seeds
2 cups white sugar
1 cups vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup lemon juice
zest of one lemon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 8x4 inch bread pans.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, salt, baking powder, poppy seeds and 2 1/2 cups white sugar. Add the eggs, milk, oil, vanilla and lemon; mix until smooth, about 1 minute. Pour batter evenly into the prepared pans.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaves comes out clean. Cool loaves in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
