2 teaspoons almond extract

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1 to 2 tablespoons orange juice or milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 5 mini (5 3/4x3-inch) loaf pans. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine sugar and butter in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in poppy seed, 2 teaspoons almond extract and vanilla.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine flour, baking powder and salt in bowl. Add flour mixture and milk, alternately, to butter mixture, beating after each addition until just combined.

  4. STEP 4

    Divide batter evenly among prepared pans. Bake 35-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Place pans onto cooling rack; cool 5 minutes. Remove bread from pans; cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract and enough orange juice for desired glazing consistency in bowl until well mixed. Spoon glaze over loaves; top with sliced almonds, if desired.

Tip #1

To give bread loaves as gifts, bake loaves in aluminum foil loaf pans. Do not remove from pans. Cool completely. Spoon glaze over bread tops; top with sliced almonds, if desired. Let stand until glaze is set. Wrap with plastic food wrap; tie with ribbon.
