Poppy Seed Bread With Glaze

I have been using this recipe for years and love it.

3 eggs
1 1/8 cups oil
2 1/4 cups white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract (or lemon extract)
1  1/2 tsp. butter flavoring (opt.)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 T. poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups flour

Beat together oil and sugar, then add the eggs.    Add the flavorings and extracts, poppy seeds, salt, baking powder, and milk.  Mix.  Then add the flour.

Pour mixture into two greased bread pans.  Bake at 350 for approx. 1 hour

When the bread is done and removed from the pan, cover it with glaze.

1/4 cup orange juice concentrate
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Heat these ingredients in a sauce pan until dissolved.  Pour or brush over bread.  As it cools, it will harden.
