Through the dancing poppies stole a breeze most softly lulling to my soul

July 26, 2010   
What a nice day it was out today, at least it was where I live!
Today I have a recipe to share. FINALLY! 
This is one of my favorite recipes, and the combo of flavors is amazinggggg.


LEMON POPPY SEED BREAD (with orange glaze)
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup sugar
2 TBS poppy seeds
3 eggs
The zest of one lemon
1 1/8 cup oil (such as vegetable or coconut oil)
1 1/2 tsp almond extract or leave it out and use lemon extract for extra lemony taste!

Preheat oven to 350
Mix ingredients in large bowl (mix dry first, then incorporate wet)
Pour into well greased & floured bread pans
Bake for 20 - 30 minutes, or when toothpick comes out clean
(my new oven cooks things really fast, so just keep an eye on yours!)

ORANGE GLAZE
1/4 cup orange juice
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract

Mix ingredients together 
Pour over loaves while still warm in the pan
Cool for 5 minutes, remove and serve!

I would like to start posting a new recipe every Monday to keep myself on track. We will see how that goes!!

Funny. I was just talking to someone about lemon bread the other day. I guess it's meant to be that I make my own. Thanks for the recipe.
