Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf Cake

I know we unofficially declared banana bread as the “official” food of quarantine, but wait until you try this GF poppyseed loaf. One bite and you’ll be hooked on the sweet and lemony glaze 🍋 I know a lot of us are snacking more while in quarantine and this is an easy loaf to bake up— serve warm with a cup of tea or cut a slice for a quick snack or dessert!

      I just used all almond flour. I always melt the coconut oil in a glass jar in the microwave. Then you can measure correctly and incorporate it into mixture. I just tried this recipe! It’s still cooling, but it looks and smells delicious! Hope this helps!
