Lemon Poppyseed Amish Friendship Bread

I remember having one of these starters about 10 years ago.  I also remember that lemon was our favorite.  Well, now that I have another starter, I think lemon still is the favorite around here.  I've tried several lemon versions and they all just rock. 

There is just something classic about lemon poppy seed.  I wanted to make these into muffins but the kids were using the muffin pan for something else.  It worked great in the loaf pan and everyone loved it!
