Lemon Raspberry Poppyseed Bread

A delicious and moist lemon poppyseed bread that is bursting with fresh raspberries inside.  Drizzled in a lemon glaze, this will be one of the best quick bread recipes that you make!


Quick breads are amazing, aren’t they?  I love being able to mix them together in a matter of minutes and throw it into the oven.   One of my favorite kinds is lemon poppyseed.  I love the texture of the tiny poppyseeds throughout and the lemon flavor is awesome.

But have you ever added a berry to a quick bread?

It is the most amazing thing ever!


It is like tiny pockets of fresh jam bursting in every bite!  Honestly.  I can’t even get over how amazing this bread was.  I could have eaten the entire thing in one sitting if I didn’t stop myself!   The bread baked perfectly moist and incredible.  The lemon flavor throughout was so refreshing and delicious.

The delicious lemon flavor was perfectly sweet and tart throughout.  But I do have to say that one of my favorite parts was the lemon glaze on top.  Holy cow.  It was the perfect finishing touch!


I think it would be impossible to make this and not love it.  This is a bread that is sure to impress and become an instant favorite!

You won’t regret making this bread, I promise!

  1. Ok, I would have never thought to put raspberries, lemon and poppy seeds all together in a bread. YUM! And yes, I love quick breads, too. It’s the ONLY way to do bread!

  2. What a gorgeous recipe! Thanks for sharing. This would be a winner with my family,

  3. This looks so delicious!! Can’t wait to try it.

  4. I tried it!
    We LOVE it!

    One question : my raspberries all sank to the bottom and therefore it didn’t come out of the pan well. We just ate it out of the pan and all was well. =D But for next time, how do I keep them from sinking? And when, after removing from the oven, should I take it out of the pan? While hot? warm? cold?

    Thanks! Scrumptious! Five stars!

  5. Absolutely great receipe. Everyone loves it , I will make it over and over.
