Poppy Seed Bread with Glaze Recipe
Almond, butter and orange flavorings distinguish this bread that has an especially stronger poppy seed component to set it apart.
Lemon extract provides the flavor point in this citrus loaf, gilded with a sweetened orange juice sauce.
AMAZING! I made muffins instead of bread (recipe for 2 loafs = 22 regular-sized muffins; bake at 350 for 20 minutes) and made the following changes: 1 cup butter & 1/3 cup oil instead of all oil (I didn't have butter-flavored extract), only 1 1/3 cup sugar (they still PLENTY sweet!), and double the almond extract and HALF the powdered sugar in the glaze. I dipped the tops of the muffins in the glaze twice (dip the whole batch, then go back and dip them again). Three picky kids gave them two thumbs up!
Lemon cake and pudding mixes combine forces with a scoop of poppy seeds to make one of the easiest versions of this popular dessert bread.
I cut this recipe in half and then made it into mini muffins. It yielded 30 scrumptious little bites. I love the almond orange combination of the glaze. As another reviewer commented - make the glaze! I also added some orange zest to the glaze to add some color. I think this recipe would also be good with lemon extract instead of the almond with some lemon juice in the glaze. I, too, did not not have any butter extract, so I just left if out.
This recipe is definitely going into my best recipes folder. I made this bread exactly as the recipe states and it was wonderful! The glaze is awesome. Both loaves were gone in a heartbeat. I will definitely make this again and recommend it to my friends.
Almond extract and poppy seeds in these muffins will delight your taste buds, along with the touch of sunny orange in the buttery glaze.
The classic pairing of almond flavoring with poppy seeds is enhanced with butter flavoring in this sweet quick bread. The final product glistens with an orange-almond-butter topping.
This bread teams lemon with a scattering of poppy seeds. A lemon-orange glaze provides a nice finish to this tasty loaf.
