    this recipe is missing instructions and choppy. There is nowhere that tells you when to add the poppy seeds or raw honey & realized after baking unfortunately.

      Hi there. Sorry about the confusion. We had on there to mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients. But to be more specific we went ahead and listed the ingredients in the instructions

    I substituted 3 tbsp stevia powder for extract. The resulting loaf is breadline rather than cake like. I will make this again. I am not sold on the glaze however. The directions do not match the picture. As for spreading it in every slice with the glaze I think that serving it with a low calory jam or sweetened creamcheese would work just as well or better.
