Orange Poppy Seed Bread Recipe

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 60 minutes

Yield: 2 loaves

Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons poppy seeds, toasted*
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons grated orange zest
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Orange Glaze (see recipe below)

Toasting Poppy Seeds - Toast poppy seeds in a 350 degree F. oven or in a dry frying pan over medium heat.  Stir occasionally, toasting only until seeds begins to brown.

 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two 9- x 5-inch loaf pans.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder, and salt. Add eggs, milk, vegetable oil, orange zest, vanilla extract, and almond extract; stir until dry ingredients are moistened.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. NOTE: Be sure and poke the toothpick already to the center of the loaf. A good check is to use an instant digital thermometer to test your bread. The internal temperature of the bread should be at 200 degrees F. when done. Remove from oven.

Thermapen Instant Read Meat ThermometerThis is the type of cooking and meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking. I get many readers asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the Thermapen Thermometer shown in the photo on the right. To learn more about this excellent thermometer and to also purchase one (if you desire), just click on the underlined: 

While still hot, using a long-tined fork, poke holes in the top of the baked loaves.  Pour Orange Glaze over loaves.  Cool in pans for 10 minutes; remove from pans.

Cool completely before slicing.

Yields 2 loaves.

 

ORANGE GLAZE: 
3/4 cup sifted powdered (confectioner's) sugar
1/4 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar, orange juice, vanilla extract, and almond extract; stir until well blended.
