Poppy Seed Bread

I've completely worn myself out today. It's a good thing we don't have a lot of stairs or I'd need a stair lift just to get through the house. But I'm not too tired to share another recipe with you. This time it's a yummy poppy seed bread recipe. For some reason I associate breads like this with Spring. And the weather this week has definitely been Springy. Give it a try, let me know if you like it.

Poppy Seed Bread

3 cups Flour
1 ½ tsp Salt
1 ½ tsp Baking Powder
2 ½ cups Sugar
1 ½ cups Milk
1 1/8 cup Oil
1 ½ tsp Poppy Seeds
3 Eggs
1 ½ tsp Vanilla
1 1/4 tsp Almond

Mix above ingredients. Place in greased and floured bread pan. Bake at 350
degrees, 45-55 minutes. Remove from oven when bread springs back when
touched with finger. Cool for 5 minutes. Remove from pan. Spoon glaze
over each loaf.
