Laura’s Glazed Poppy Seed Bread
Time: 15 minutes prep + 45-55 minutes to bake
Yield: 2 loaves
3 C flour
1 1/2 t salt
1 1/2 t baking powder
2 1/2 C sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 C milk
1 1/2 t almond extract
1 1/2 t vanilla extract
1 1/2 t butter flavoring
1 C + 2 T canola oil
1/4 C poppy seeds
GLAZE:
3/4 C sugar
1/4 C freshly squeezed orange juice
1 1/2 t vanilla
1/2 t butter flavoring
1/2 t almond extract
 
1. Stir your flour, salt, baking powder and sugar together in a medium sized mixing bowl with a wire whisk. 
 
 Just look at those beautiful flavorings……

2. In a separate mixing bowl whisk up your eggs until they are nice and frothy. Add the milk, vanilla, almond extract, butter flavoring and oil.
Wisk it all together until its nicely combined. 
 
3. Pour in your poppy seeds and give it another whisking to incorporate. 
 
4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry. 
 
Using a wooden spoon, stir everything together just until combined. You don’t want a lot of flour clumps, but you don’t want to over mix here either. 
 
5. Take a piece of parchment paper and trace the shape of the bottom of your pan onto it with a pencil. Fold the paper over and cut two pieces out, using the pencil tracing as a guide. 
 
6. Place the cut paper into the bottom of your pans and spray it with cooking spray. It works best if you use a cooking spray that has flour in it. Baker’s Joy works like a charm. Pam Cooking Spray also has a cooking spray with added flour. Buy one…you won’t be sorry. 
 
7. Pour the batter into your pans. Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 
 
8. While the bread is baking, make the glaze. It’s super easy! Juice your orange into a small mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients and stir it well. 
 
9. When your bread is done, remove it from the oven and let it rest for about 3 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the pan and then carefully dump the bread out of the pans and onto a cooling rack. Place a large cookie sheet under your cooling rack.
10. Give your glaze a few stirs to be sure all ingredients are mixed together and then pour it over the top of your bread. Brush the glaze that falls onto the cookie sheet over the loaves. Let the bread sit for about 10 minutes to soak up the glaze. Then dig in my friend…..enjoy a little trip to heaven today!

Enjoy!

    I love loaded veggie and swiss sandwiches on a freshly baked ciabatta or other kind of bun done by our local bakery. Usually load it up with fresh peppers, lettuce, sprouts, tomatoes, avacado, cucumber and or pickles and maybe a slice of onion and of course a good slice of swiss cheese. Loaded and yummy!

      Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d fregiud I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

      Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you reiled on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    My favorite summer time dish is this yummy marinated and then grilled chicken. The chicken is good alone or on a bun with toppings. I serve it with a fresh berry salad and some corn on the cob.

    If anyone is interested in amazingly delicious and super EASY marinated chicken check this recipe out! http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1739,154190-241193,00.html The first time I made it was for a bbq with friends and they raved about it! My husband asks me to make it all the time.
