  • Warm the oven up to 175°F (350°F). Or, line a 9×5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper to make it easy to take out the bread. Grease and flour the pan.
  • Mix the salt, poppy seeds, lemon zest, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium-sized bowl with a whisk. Put away.


  • Put the softened butter and granulated sugar in a large bowl and mix them together until they are light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time and then the vanilla extract.


  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ones, mixing them in with the Greek yoghurt (or sour cream) each time.
  • Start with the dry ingredients and end with the wet ones. Mix until everything is just combined. Be careful not to mix too much.


  • Add the lemon juice slowly and stir it into the batter until it’s well mixed in.
  • As soon as the loaf pan is ready, pour the batter into it and use a spatula to smooth the top.


  • After the oven is hot, bake the bread for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.
  • Make the glaze while the bread is in the oven. Mix the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a small bowl with a whisk until the mixture is smooth and easy to pour. If you need to, add more lemon juice to change the consistency.


  • Take the bread out of the oven when it’s done and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.
  • Carefully move the bread to a wire rack that has been set on top of a baking sheet or parchment paper.


  • Pour the lemon glaze over the warm bread and let it run down the sides.
  • Before cutting and serving, let the bread cool all the way down. Have fun!
