    This is a great lemon poppy seed loaf. I've included my special tweaks too. Makes 2 loaves.

    Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf
    1 pkg. (18 1/4 oz.) white cake mix 1/2 cup oil*
    1 pkg. instant lemon pudding mix 4 tsp. poppy seeds
    1 cup warm water zest of 1 lemon
    4 eggs Glaze, if desired
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, water, eggs and oil; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Fold in lemon zest and poppy seeds. Pour into 2 greased 9x5 inch loaf pans Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Glaze if desired.

    * I used vegetable oil.
    Lemon Glaze
    1/2 cup powdered sugar 3-4 tbs. lemon juice
    Put powdered sugar in small bowl and add the lemon juice-just enough to make a thin liquid when drizzled from a spoon. Glaze each loaf. If desired can glaze sides of lemon poppy bread loaves too. (May use Realemon Juice instead of lemon juice; I did)
    Makes 2 loaves.

    Wasn't sure if you wanted from scratch cakes or a package mix. But this one is so good and so easy hope you like it as much as we do.

    My special tweaks are the lemon zest and the glaze. Wanted it to be lemony but not tart.

    This is a really lovely recipe - such a light moist cake.

    It is a link from a British supermarket website - so please let me know if you cannot open the link and if you'd like it - I will copy it out for you !!

    If you use a cake mix and put oil in it make sure it Duncan Hines. The others aren't as good for that kind of a cake.

    Add dry ingredients to batter alternating with milk and mix well. Stir in coconut. Pour batter into 2

    I am trying Sharon's recipe from above except I had no lemons so I added two pulverized peaches and a can of canned coconut milk 13.5 oz plus the 1/2 C dried coconut. Also we put it in cup cake pans with paper liners at 400 degrees for 18 minutes. It sure smelled good.

    They are yummy. they look a bit pale but take them out else they will be dry. we did 3 times the recipe for 48 cup cakes. also the canned coconut milk 13.5 oz and 2 large pulverized peaches was for 3 times the recipe. the dry grated coconut was the unsweetened. If you use sweetened I would cut down on the sugar. we thought it was sweet enough. this would make a great wedding cake or birthday cake.
