Sweet and moist Almond Poppyseed Bread, a delicious treat to enjoy with your favorite cup of tea.
Almond Poppyseed Bread For Tea Lovers
I made this Almond Poppy Seed Bread for my mama!
She celebrated her 77th birthday this past Saturday, and since she has always enjoyed tea, not coffee.
I decided to get creative to find some tea related gifts.
I picked up a cute tray and filled it with a selection of tea leaves from my local tea shop, new kitchen towels, a pretty table runner, some purchased cookies.
All lovely, but the star of the gift was a loaf of this freshly baked Almond Poppy Seed Bread!
It’s so fun to shop when you know a person will love all the goodies you picked out, and even more enjoyable to add something that’s baked from home!
Food Gift Idea
I used almond paste in this bread, and boy does that almond flavor come through perfectly, and so delicious with poppy seeds!
I made another loaf without the seeds because I was on a baking roll and wanted to test the flavor.
Do you like the little crunch from the seeds? I think it adds a nice texture to the bread, so when I bake this bread again, the poppy seeds are staying!
The disposable loaf baking pans are from my local craft store.
They measure about 6″ x 3″ which are smaller than regular sized loaf pans.
It was hard to decide what pattern and colors to choose. It had to match the rest of the gifts 😉
Assuming mom will be sharing this bread with my dad, the mini loaf is a great size for two!
