Poppy Seed Bread

One of my favorites at the holidays was poppy seed bread.  This recipe was given to mom from Aunt Barbara.  I put it here without any alternations from me.  It is the best!

Ingredients

3 eggs

3 cups flour

2 1/4 cups of sugar

1 1/4 cup of oil (I use canola)

1 1/2 cups of milk

1 1/2 tablespoons of poppy seeds

1 1/2 teaspoons of almond extract

1 1/2 teaspoons of imitation butter extract

1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons of salt

Technique

Combine everything in a large bowl and mix well.  It will form a fairly liquid batter.  Pour them into 2 bread loaf pans that have been greased and floured.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Topping

Combine

1/4 cup of orange juice

1/2 teaspoon of almond extract

1/2 teaspoon of imitation butter extract

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

3/4 cup of powdered sugar.

Technique

Mix well and pour over the loafs just as they come out of the oven.  They will absorb the liquid and become very moist.
