The Simmons Family



3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/4 cups sugar
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/8 cups oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract


1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Mix all bread ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour batter into a greased and floured loaf pan and bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Cool bread for 5 minutes and while it is cooling, combine ingredients for the glaze in a pot on the stove top. Heat till warmed through and sugar is melted. Poke small holes in the bread (I use a cake tester to do this) and then pour the warm glaze over the warm bread in the pan. Allow it to soak in for about 5 minutes and then remove the bread from the pan.
