Ingredients

Bread:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/8 cups cooking oil
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon . poppy seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons butter flavoring extract (or 1 1/2 tsp melted butter can be substituted)

Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter flavor extract (or 1/2 tsp melted butter can be substituted)

Instructions

  1. For the bread: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients together. Pour into greased and floured baking pans. Makes 6 small loaves or 2 large loaves. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes for large pans and less for smaller pans. If you have a dark metal pan make sure to bake it for less time at a lower temperature. I overdid this batch a little bit because I used a dark pan. I like the disposable foil bread pans the best.
  2. For the Glaze: Pour all ingredients into a small saucepan and let cook on stove on medium heat until sugar dissolves. Remove bread from pans and pour glaze over warm bread. Use knife or spatula to bring the glaze that has run off up and over the warm bread until it stays on.
