Lemon Poppy Seed Toast

Lemon Poppy Seed Toast

Have you ever had a hobby that you’re not very good at but just really love doing?

Yeah? Me too. Mine is baking, which is weird because obviously I write a recipe blog. But if you check out the recipe index, you’ll notice that there aren’t actually many recipes for baked goods. The ones that I do have are delicious, but it usually takes a while to perfect them.

So if I’m having a strong craving for particular treat, I’ll probably go out and buy it.

 

And I think that’s totally ok. Even when I make mistakes, I keep baking because it’s so much fun, but I also know that I can’t expect to get every recipe right on the first try. Everything takes practice. And that’s hard for me to accept, because I really like being good at stuff.

In the meantime, when a lemon poppy seed muffin craving hits (which trust me, it often does), I’ll:

  • a) go out and buy one
  • b) make lemon poppy seed toast (for the days when I don’t feel like interrupting my Netflix marathon)

The fresh, cool flavors of this lemon poppy seed toast make it the perfect summer snack. And because it’s so simple- only 5 ingredients and you don’t even need the oven- you can pull it together in less than 5 minutes.

Since it’s so simple, this recipe is also easily adaptable. Just use dairy-free yogurt to make it vegan, and gluten free bread to keep things gf. My current favorite gluten free bread is Bread SRSLY, and I was even able to talk to the founder on my podcast recently!
