A slice of sweet bread with a cup of tea or coffee is my prefect afternoon treat. Whether a friend is visiting or I’m taking a screen-break I cherish that afternoon quiet time before the kids are of the bus and the busy-ness of after school and dinner begins. When one of my best friends called to say she was coming over I wanted to make something quick, delicious and gluten-free. With a PC Gluten-free Yellow Loaf Cake Mix I had the basics for a perfect gluten free lemon poppyseed loaf. With just a few simple ingredients you can make a classic tea-time treat.
Gluten Free Lemon Poppyseed Loaf
1 PC Gluten Free Yellow Loaf Cake Mix
Juice of 1 lemon (approx. 1/4 cup)
Zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp lemon extract
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp poppy seeds
Preheat oven to 350
In a stand mixer or large bowl add cake mix, lemon juice, lemon zest and lemon extract and mix until combined.
Then add in eggs, water, vegetable oil and poppy seeds and mix on medium speed for 2-3 minutes.
Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and bake for 55 minutes or until it is brown on the edges and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Allow loaf to cool.
1 1/2 cups icing sugar (powdered sugar)
Juice of 1 lemon (for thicker glaze use only half the juice)
Zest of 1 lemon
Whisk together and pour over loaf and allow to harden.
