-Yummy, Almond Poppy Seed Bread-

 

I found this recipe on the internet a few years ago, it is by far my favorite Poppy Seed Bread recipe and it is so easy. I just made some yesterday (as seen in the picture above) and it was so moist and delicious. Note: if you don't want it to be so sweet, then don't add the glaze.

--batter--
3 cups flour
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tbs. poppy seeds
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/8 cups oil
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract

--glaze--
1/4 cup orange juice
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract

Directions: Mix all batter ingredients in a large bowl (I like to mix the dry ingredients and then mix the wet into the dry). Pour the batter into two well greased and floured loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Let cool for 5 minutes. Blend glaze ingredient. Pour over the loaves after they have cooled for the five minutes. Cool loaves for five more minutes, then remove loaves from pan
