Poppyseed Bread

4 years ago

If you've never had or heard of Poppyseed Bread, today is your lucky day. This bread, which is actually more like a super moist cake, has always been one of my favorite desserts/snacks. My mom makes a bunch of loaves around Christmastime, and it's a treasured treat that I just can't get enough of. I usually request extra so I can freeze a loaf or two for later in the year. It's really that good.

It's so, so simple, and SO tasty. It's made with a package of store bought cake mix, but adding vanilla pudding makes it extra moist and the poppy seeds add a level of flavor that you wouldn't really expect. I think it's the texture of this bread/cake that just does it for me. It's extremely soft and pretty much falls over when you grab a piece because it is so moist. It doesn't even need icing or a glaze, it's perfect just the way it is. Enjoy!
