Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

I decided that I was going to participate in Jen from Beantown Baker's Bloggers Bake for Hope bake sale.  What a cute idea...bloggers baking items to be auctioned off in a virtual bake sale benefiting the Susan G. Koman foundation.  Once the items are auctioned off, bakers make & ship their items to the buyer.  I thought about what I could bake that would ship well for some time.  I eventually decided on this bread- because it's moist & will (hopefully, keep my fingers crossed) ship well.
