Amaretto Poppyseed Loaf

This loaf is so good! Made with butter, olive oil and plain yogurt it is super moist and the perfect afternoon pick me up or dessert.

While we love the moist cake the Amaretto Cream Cheese Glaze is the real winner. If you love amaretto you will love this glaze! We wish we had more pictures to really show of this loaf.. but the truth is it is always half eaten before we can snap any pictures.
