Almond Poppyseed Quick Bread

My family has somewhat of an obsession with almond flavored foods. Breads, cheesecake, cookies…we find a way to sneak into all sorts of baked goods. This easy quick bread recipe lets almond be the star and can satisfy a morning sweet tooth or could even be served as a simple dessert. The mini loaves make a great gift for friends as well.

Almond Poppyseed Quick Bread
3 C flour
2 1/2 C sugar
1 1/2 C milk
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 C vegetable oil
1 1/2 Tbsp poppyseeds

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and poppyseeds with a whisk. Beat in milk, almond and vanilla. Beat in vegetable oil. Beat in eggs and mix well, for approximately 2 minutes. Pour batter into two greased loaf pans or 4-5 mini loaf pans. Bake regular loaves for 60-65 min or mini loaves for about 45 min. Let cool.

Glaze (optional)
1 C powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/4 C orange juice

In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients. Drizzle glaze over top of loaves and let set for at least 1 hour before cutting.

Loaves can be wrapped in foil and placed in a zipper freezer bag and frozen if you don’t plan on eating them within a day or so.
