My new favorite cookbook is Pinterest. A lot of the recipes I use are from something I pinned because I think there are a lot of great cooking blogs out there and if it was pinned by someone else, it’s more likely to be good! While I was on it the other day, I was looking for a poppy seed bread to make for a potluck because my husband loves poppy seed bread. I came across this recipe on Jamie Cooks It Up and it was amazing! If you like poppy seed bread, you have to try this!

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
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
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 flour, salt, baking powder and sugar together in a medium sized mixing bowl with a wire whisk.
2. In a separate mixing bowl whisk up eggs until they are frothy. Add the milk, vanilla, almond extract, butter flavoring and oil. Wisk all together until its combined.
3. Add poppy seeds and wisk the ingredients again.
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. Cut out two pieces to line the bottoms of the pans.
6. Once the parchment paper is in, spray it with cooking spray.
7. Pour the batter into your pans. Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (Mine took the whole 55 minutes)
8. While the bread is baking, make the glaze. 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.
It’s just so good! You’re going to love it!
