This has been a favorite of my family's for over 15 years. I originally found this recipe in Boston years ago and made it every year for Christmas in small pans for gifts. Recently my little terrier puppy chewed my cherished cookbook to pieces and i was heartbroken to find this recipe in pieces. You can imagine my joy to see that it is still listed here. Enjoy!
Very moist and easy to bake; to make it into healthy morning muffins, substitue 1/2 cup applesauce and 2 Tbsp. butter for the total 2/3 cup. I also reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and they were just as tasty!
My husband and I loved this.
Nothing special about this recipe. There are so many poppyseed lemon/lemon only breads abd cakes out there. Maida Heater has some wonderful ones.
