Super Rapid Lemon Poppy Seed Bread Fast2eat

Super Rapid Lemon Poppy Seed Bread Fast2eat

We all love some Lemon Poppy Seed Bread not only for how insanely moist and tender it is but also for that citrusy note. Both the juice and the zest will ensure we can taste every ounce of that citrus.

Lemon is one of my favourite flavours. It’s just so vibrant and refreshing. The lemon flavour in this bread shines. It has juice and zest layered throughout the batter, lemon juice mixed into the batter. Poppy seeds have a deep, nutty flavour with a slight crunch and are a source of antioxidants, fibre, and folic acid.

I am sure you will love this amazing lemon poppy seed bread. It is a refreshing light snack or dessert that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters! It is way better and way cheaper than anything you can buy in a coffee shop! The best part? It’s so easy to whip together.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups Water - 80-90°F/26-32°C
  • 2 tbsp Butter - room temperature or margarine or shortening
  • 3/4 tsp Lemon juice
  • 3 1/4 cups Bread flour
  • 2 tbsp Dry milk powder
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Lemon zest - grated
  • 1 tbsp Poppy seed
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 4 tsp Instant dry yeast

Instructions

  • Attach the kneading blade in the Bread Maker pan.
  • Place all ingredients into the bread pan following the recipe order (or following the order and method specified in the manual of your Bread Maker – mine is: FIRST, liquid ingredients; SECOND, dry ingredients; LAST, yeast). Note: With a finger or a knife, make a small indentation in the middle of the flour. Add yeast to indentation, making sure it does not come into contact with the liquid ingredients.
  • Carefully insert bread pan into Bread Maker and gently close the lid.
  • Plug the power cord into a wall outlet. Select the “Rapid/Quick” (about 1:20-1:45h - This cycle varies from machine to machine bread setting and press the Start button.
    With the “Quick setting,” “Crust Colour,” and “size” cannot be changed.
  • Open the lid and while using Oven Mitt, firmly grasp the bread pan handle and gently pull the pan straight up and out of the machine. CAUTION: The Bread Maker and pan may be very hot! Always handle with care.
  • Use non-stick Spatula to gently loosen the sides of the bread from the pan.
  • Turn bread pan upside down onto a Wire Cooling Rack or clean cooking surface and gently shake until bread falls out onto rack.
  • Cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • To make perfect slices every time use a Bread Slicer with an electric knife.

Notes

Poppy seeds won't make you loopy, but eating them can cause a false positive on a drug test. It is uncommon, but it does happen. Some companies won't allow subsequent drug testing or second chance drug testing, or more refined drug testing. This means you could lose your job unless you can pay for the advanced drug testing yourself. Or you might be passed over for a job because of a false positive. Although most drug screens are now sophisticated enough to differentiate between the seeds and actual processed narcotic, it’s safe. Just do NOT use the poppy seed if you need a test.

See if dried herb mix is enough for your palate. If not, increase it a bit. You can try other herbs in this recipe as well, such as Marjoram, Thyme, Herbes de Provence, lovage, savoury and parsley.

It’s always a good idea to open the bread machine’s lid during the second kneading cycle (after about 10 minutes) and check the consistency of the dough ball.
The dough is “just right” when it is a smooth round ball in appearance, soft to the touch, leaves a slight residue on your finger, and the bottom of the bread pan is clean of dough residue.
  • If it’s too dry, add lukewarm liquid a teaspoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If there is flour on the sides of the pan, use a Silicone Spatula to wipe the flour from the pan.
Important: This can be done during the knead cycle only. DO NOT remove the pan; KEEP it locked in the machine. Do NOT turn off the bread maker to adjust the dough.

Weather can affect your ingredients
If you live in a moist climate, chances are you’ll need at least the recommended amount of flour, maybe even 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup more. Bread dough should be sticky but still manageable, especially after the first rise. While you’re kneading, the dough should come together and pull away from the sides of the bowl, leaving the bowl mostly clean. I usually aim to have the very bottom of the dough still attached to the bowl. Try not to add too much flour because your bread will be denser. When you pick the dough up, some will stick to your fingers. After the first rise, it will be easier to handle!

You may also make this bread without a bread machine's aid or make the dough in a bread machine and bake it in the oven.
Make the dough using your usual method (by hand, electric mixer or bread machine); allow it to rise until puffy, then shape it into a log, and place it in a lightly greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch (21.5 x 11.5 cm) bread pan. Allow the loaf to rise, covered, until it's crowned about 1 inch over the rim of the pan. If you want, brush the risen loaf with the beaten egg white, and sprinkle it with seeds. Bake it in a preheated 350°F/175°C oven for 35 minutes, or until its interior temperature registers 190°F/88°C on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the bread from the oven, remove it from the pan, and cool it on a wire rack.

How can you tell if the bread is fully baked?
I like to use a food thermometer. Mine is digital, so it’s straightforward to use. Fully cooked bread will be 190-200°F/88-93°C. Bread recipes that include milk will need to cook until 200°F/93°C, but without you can take it out once it reaches 190°F/88°C. The top will be golden brown.

Turned out well, used milk instead of water and added more zest cause wife loves lemon. My bread maker is a cheap Hamilton-Beach and it worked perfectly on setting 4, “Quick”.

I am so glad that you liked it.
