Poppy Seed Loaf


3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 ts baking powder
1 ts baking soda
3/4 ts salt
2/3 cup butter @ room temp
1 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
2 large eggs @ room temp
2 ts vanilla extract
2 ts lemon extract or lemon oil
1 1/4 cups sour cream @ room temp
2/3 cups poppy seeds

This recipe can be muffins or a loaf as I choose to do it today. Butter and flour or spray the loaf pan or muffin tins. Preheat the oven to 350.
Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and poppy seeds.
Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Mix in the eggs one at a time making sure each is well incorporated.
Add both extracts.
Add one third of the flour mixture and beat just until well incorporated, don't over mix.
Add the sour cream, just until incorporated and not over mixing, repeating until until all the ingredients are added.
Add the batter to your desired cooking dish and set in the oven. Watch this loaf well, making sure it is browning evenly. Rotate the pan if necessary.
Within an hour, around 45 minutes in a loaf pan you will have a lovely cake/bread. If you find that it's very brown and not done cover loosely with a piece of foil. This loaf should spring back to touch. This loaf won't last long!



Enjoy!
