Poppyseed Bread

Pin It
I LOVE poppy seed muffins so what could be better than that? .... how about poppy-seed bread!  Especially poppy-seed bread that has a delicious sugary glaze ..... oh so yummy.
While surfing through Pinterest one evening, I ran across a recipe that was posted and I knew that I just HAD to try it and WOW, I have to say that this is the BEST poppy-seed bread we have ever eaten.  This recipe is Starbuck's worthy, the corner bakery worthy and Grandma's Sunday best worthy.  If you love poppy seeds, then you just have to bake this bread.
3 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoons 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 tablespoons 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 teaspoons melted butter can be substituted)
1/4 cup orange juice
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring extract (or 1 1/2 teaspoons melted butter can be substituted)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all the ingredients for the bread together in a large bowl.  Pour batter into greased and floured baking pans.  Makes 6 small loaves or 2 large loaves.  Bake for 50 to 60 minutes for large pans (less for small just have to keep an eye on them).  If you have dark, metal pans start watching the bread at approximately 45 minutes.....dark pans bake faster.
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 a knife or spatula to bring the glaze that has run off, up and over the warm bread until it stays on.
The original recipe can be found here.  Thanks Christy for sharing such a wonderful recipe.  This one is definitely a keeper!
Happy baking and remember to give your loved ones a hug!
