Almond Poppy Seed Bread

My mom’s poppy seed bread was always a favorite of mine growing up.  Her recipe always made two loaves- one to give away and one to keep.  It is the perfect weekend treat!  This weekend, I took on the challenge of making it gluten and dairy free… and succeeded.  It has great texture as well as taste.  This recipe makes one loaf.
