Lemon-Poppy Seed Bread
Ingredients
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup  poppy seeds
  • 1  tablespoon  baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  cup  sugar
  • 3  eggs
  • 1/2  cup  vegetable oil
  • 1/2  cup  plain Greek-style yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/4  cup  milk
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1/4  cup  fresh lemon juice
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1  recipe Lemon Icing (optional)
Directions

1. Coat a 4- to 5-quart oval slow cooker or a 4-quart round slow cooker with cooking spray. In a large bowl stir together flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl whisk together sugar, eggs, oil, yogurt, milk, lemon peel, lemon juice, and the 1 teaspoon vanilla until sugar dissolves. Add sugar mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until combined (mixture should still be slightly lumpy). Spoon batter into prepared slow cooker.

3. Cover and cook on high-heat setting for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until top appears set. Turn off slow cooker. Carefully remove lid so condensation from lid does not drip onto bread. Cover opening of slow cooker completely with paper towels; place lid on top. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Run a knife around edges of slow cooker; remove bread from cooker. Cool completely on a wire rack. If desired, drizzle with Lemon Icing.
