If you are looking for a sweet bread to impress a group of people, then look no further. This Poppy Seed Bread with Citrus Glaze is an absolute must make. Everyone I have ever made this for has wanted the recipe.
What makes this bread so good?
Magic- for real, I don’t know, the combination of flavors is just out of this world. And don’t even get my started on the texture. This bread has the perfect sweet bread texture, you don’t want to over bake this. I know people hate the word moist, but there is no other way to describe how amazing this texture is.
In my opinion you HAVE to make the glaze, it turns the bread into something even more magical.
This bread is super easy to make. Which makes it a little too temping to make a little too often. My family may or may not be able to polish off both of these loafs in a ridiculous amount of time.
Make sure you have these three extracts before getting started;
This Poppy Seed bread does call for three extracts, and one of them you will likely not have on hand, so plan ahead. It has vanilla extract ( I am sure you have this one), almond extract, and butter extract (don’t worry this is vegan friendly). The combination of these extracts do something special. I would highly not recommend subbing any of them out.
I do use an egg re-placer in this, the only one I have ever tried is this one. But, next time I make it I am going to see if I can get away from the egg re-placer. I am sure flax eggs would do great in this.
This would be perfect for Easter brunch, or any brunch or a baby shower. Or if you’re like us, we just make it for a tasty dessert.

Vegan Poppy Seed Bread with Glaze
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1.5 tsp salt
- 1.5 tsp baking powder
- 3 TB poppy seeds
- 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
- 1.5 tsp almond extract
- 1.5 tsp butter extract
- 1 cup oil, neutral
- 3 Ener- G egg replacer (follow directions on back)
- 2 cups sugar, white
- 1.5 cups plant milk
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/2 tsp butter extract
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- Preheat your oven to 350F (175 C), grease and flour two 9 inch loaf pans and set aside.2. Mix all ingredients, except for the glaze section, mix until combined.
3. While it’s cooking make your glaze and set it aside.
4. Pour into the prepared loaf pans, bake for about 60 minutes, start checking at 55 minutes, it may need more time. When a toothpick comes out clean you know it’s done. Let rest for 5 minutes. Poke holes in the bread, and use a pastry brush to spread the glaze, while it’s still warm. ** I like to carefully remove the bread, put a thing of wax paper down under my cooling rack, then do the poking and glaze pour, so it runs down the sides. Once cooled, enjoy!
