Lemon and poppy seeds mini loaves

8 May

I love anything with lemon flavor and I love using lemons in cooking and baking. They are so versatile – can be used in savory dishes or sweet dishes. I have made the lemon mini loaves for a few times and they were adored by everyone who ate them. This time I have added some poppy seeds which added some texture and crunchiness. They are soft and moist, perfectly balanced between sweet and sour with a strong lemon flavor. No more to say just to show you the recipe right away! 🙂
