This Almond Poppy Seed Bread has the perfect soft, light and crumby texture and has just the right sweetness. A simple bread that your whole family will enjoy
I absolutely love simple no-yeast sweet breads that you can make from home, usually with ingredients you already have in your pantry. Some of my favorites are listed just before the recipe card.
A friend made this lemon loaf recently and it was so yummy I knew I wanted to make a spin off almond version, because I LOVE almond flavor in bake goods (like this yummy Almond Sheet Cake). This Almond Poppy Seed Bread is just perfect. Perfect soft, light and crumby texture.
This bread is not too sweet, but sweet enough that you could never stop at one slice. It makes the perfect “neighbor gift” or it’s perfect for serving at brunch, as a snack, or even for dessert.
