Poppy Seed Bread

This poppy seed bread recipe is from my wonderful friend (and foodie) Jen. She brought this bread to share at a gathering and I got to have some of the leftovers. It was gone in a day! This bread is so delicious. It's sweet and fluffy and has a yummy glaze covering it. I made this bread myself for family and everyone loved it!
 The next time you are having brunch or just want a heavenly little goodie at breakfast, do yourself a favor and make this bread. This recipe makes 2 loaves, so be sure to share with someone you care about!

1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring (I used my homemade vanilla extract)
1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring
1 1/2 tablespoon poppy seeds
For the Glaze
1/4 cup orange juice
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 
1 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream oil and sugar together in an stand mixer or with an electric hand mixer. Add eggs and mix well. Mix the vanilla, almond, and butter with the milk. In a small bowl mix flour, salt, and baking soda.
Alternately add in milk and dry ingredients to the sugar/egg mixture. Mix well after each addition. Add in poppy seeds and mix. 
Pour into 2 large greased and floured bead pans. 
Bake for 50 - 60 minutes. While baking make the glaze by whisking all ingredients together. After removing bread from the oven, punch holes in the top with a fork. Pour glaze over bread and let sit for at least 20 minutes.DSC_4551 
Remove from bread pans. Slice and serve.

  5. I made this over the weekend for a shower, it was so good!!! I may try adding lemon next time though because I'm a sucker for Lemon Poppy seed bread!
