lemon poppyseed bread.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup poppy seed
1 tbsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
Cream butter, gradually add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add poppy seed, vanilla, eggs and mix well. Combine remaining ingredients in a seperate bowl. Start with your flour mixture and add a little and then your buttermilk. Alternate until mixed well. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. (Because i used the mini loaf pans, i started watching the bread at about 30 minutes.)
Glaze: 1-2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 tbsp. butter (melted), juice and peel of one lemon. When cake is cooling poke some holes in it. When it has cooled enough pour your glaze over it. I'm big on the presentation of things. I loved this twine i found at Hobby Lobby that gave it a little bit of an Anthropologie feel.
