Need a great Easter Brunch Recipe, Poppy Seed Bread, yum
Years ago a good friend of mine was a demonstrator for The Pampered Chef Company. I went to my first Pampered Chef party and she made this yummy bread in the bread crock, it was her sister's recipe. Well, the bread was a huge hit and she sold alot of the crocks. In the years since I have made this recipe dozens of times and have passed it on to many people. It is very simple to make, it is just a dump recipe and the taste is out of this world. I think the secret is the yummy glaze made with orange juice, sugar, and almond extract, yumm! I make them up in small loaves to give as gifts at Christmas and Easter or for no specific reason at all! I decided to share this cake, I mean bread recipe, (but it really does taste more like a cake), with all of you so that you can make it up to take to an Easter brunch, to give away to friends, or just to show your family you really havent been blogging all day, again, lol.
The Best Poppy Seed Bread Recipe
In a large bowl combine:
3 cups flour
2 ¼ C sugar
1 ½ C milk
1 1/8 C veg. oil
1 ½ T poppy seeds
1 ½ t salt
1 ½ t baking powder
1 ½ t vanilla
1 ½ t almond extract
1 ½ t butter flavoring
Mix 1 to 2 minutes only
Spray your bread pan with Pam and fill ¾ full
Bake @ 350 for about 1 hour. The top should be golden brown and slightly split
I also make them in mini bread pans, and of course the cooking time is shortened, so watch them!
Glaze: Mix in a small bowl and pour over bread, on a plate, and then I take the loaves and dip the sides in the excess, YUMMY!
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup orange juice
½ t vanilla
½ t butter flavoring
½ t almond extract
Enjoy, and let me know if you do make it, what you think of it, I know you'll love it! Sue
