1 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter at room temperature, divided

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 1/4 tablespoons poppy seeds

3/4 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed key lime juice, divided

2/3 cup confectioners sugar

1 teaspoon key lime zest


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease loaf pan with 1 tablespoon butter. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and poppy seeds. In a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed or in a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat together remaining cup of butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in vanilla and 1/3 cup key lime juice until combined. Add flour mixture to bowl and beat until just incorporated. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan, smooth top, and bake until a cake tester comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Whisk together confectioners sugar, remaining 2 tablespoons key lime juice, and key lime zest until smooth. Pour glaze over bread while warm.
