Lemon Poppy Seed Low Carb Bread

This bread is more like a rich moist cake. It's yummy and filling. The recipe is from Colette Heimowitz Atkins Cookbook in the breakfast section.

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread
My version of this bread had a few changes to accommodate our store cupboard. I didn't have poppy seeds so I used black sesame seeds, which was a mistake as they gave my version of this bread a slightly dark grey colour. I only had baking powder and not baking soda so I added more baking powder in lieu of the baking soda.

I never add salt to our food so I skipped the salt. I used soy cream instead of sour cream. I didn't have lemon extract so I used fresh lemon juice. But the biggest change was omitting the Atkins baking mix and using my own low carb baking mix. See how to make it in last week's blog post - here.
