Introduction

I had buttermilk to use up, and a recipe to try out! I liked the looks of the recipe I used as a base: http://ecoki.com/vegan-glazed-lemon-butter
milk-bundt/ but wanted to turn it from a Bundt into loaves, and I added a ribbon of poppyseeds for beauty! I definitely bumped up the lemon, using zest, juice and extract!
