Lemon Poppyseed Bread


This is a recipe my grandmother used to make to give as Christmas gifts this year I did the same.  They turned out delicious.

3 eggs (beaten)
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup plus 2 Tblsp. of Oil
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 1/2 tsp. imitation butter extract
Beat above all together.

3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 Tblsp. Poppy Seeds
Mix dry ingredients into above mixture.

Pour batter into 5 mini greased loaf pans
Bake 50 minutes at 350 degrees

Glaze:
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. imitation butter
3/4 sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
Mix

Pour on bread while hot.
Cool in pans
After cool remove from pan.  My grandmother and mom then wrapped in saran wrap and foil and tied in ribbon.  I got the foil pans with lids so I left the bread in the pans put the lid on top and tied with a ribbon.  I also baked cookies (recipe to follow) put those in small gifts bags and attached to the loaf pan’s ribbon.
