Vegan Lemon Poppy Loaf

I love this soft, buttery, fluffy, lemony, poppy seed loaf. It makes mornings go from cold cereal boring to a special spring way to start the day. The lemon icing kicks it up even more for a real breakfast treat.

  • In a large bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients. 
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and gently mix together. Don't over mix, lumps are totally fine.
  • Pout the batter into at the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45 - 55 mins, rotating once midway through. The loaf is ready when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely before icing. When cool, mix the lemon icing ingredients together in a bowl. Set the loaf on a cooling rack over a baking sheet to catch all the excess icing. Drizzle the icing over the loaf. Let the icing set for about 30 minutes before slicing.
