My sister sent me this recipe to try a few weeks ago. It's been on my list of "to dos" and today was the day. I was intrigued by the quirky measurements and I thought I'd give it a whirl. It has that wonderful hint of almond extract that reminds me of Christmas cookies. It is super yummy! Give it a try, you won't be sorry.
Poppy Seed Bread
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/8 cups vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 tsp butter, melted
Grease and lightly flour two 9x5 inch loaf pans. In a large bowl mix all ingredients, then beat for 2 minutes. Pour into pans and bake at 350 for 1 hour. Pour glaze over hot bread in pans. Let cool before removing from pans.
3/4 cup sugar
In a small bowl combine all ingredients together. Pour over hot bread or orange rolls.
** Don't look too closely at my bread; it's a little over cooked. The mister was in charge of taking it out of the oven while I ran to my sister's house. He heard the timer beep and he just left it because he "figured I would be home soon." I just love that guy, but he does have a long history of oven issues.
