Poppy Seed Bread

My dear quilting friend posted a recipe for a nice loaf of bread....
I wanted to make it.  But, alas, there is NO YEAST left on the planet.

So I decided to make a quick bread.
I had all the ingredients except butter flavoring.

I checked out what Target had in the baking aisle.

The whole section was empty.
Every flavor....gone.

I asked my resident baker if he thought it would be okay without it.
He said yes.

And so.....

I share with you a delicious, throw back recipe. 
This is from my sister Cindy.

Poppy Seed Bread

Preheat oven 350°
grease and flour two loaf pans

3 cups flour
1 1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 t. baking powder

3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups cooking oil
2 1/4 sugar
1 T. poppy seeds

1 1/2 t. vanilla
1 1/2 t. almond flavoring
1 1/2 butter flavoring

Mix wet ingredients, add dry ingredients, mix for 2 minutes on medium.

Bake 1 hour.  Check at 50 min


Now make the glaze.

1/4 cup orange juice
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 t. butter flavoring
1/2 t. almond flavoring
1/2 t. vanilla

Stir and pour over hot bread.

Cool- remove from pan.
wrap and refrigerate. (I don't do this)

I just love the glaze on this bread.  I made 1/2 the recipe...but used almost the full amount of glaze.
I should have just gone with it and used it all. 

What are your quarantine favorites?

What are you five must haves?  desert island foods?

Encourage one another,


  1. I am not usually a fan of banana bread, but the first week we were under stay at home orders I made the King Arthur Flour website banana bread. It calls for apricot jam in the mix and I happened to have some. It's so good! Now we are trying to save up bananas again but the teenagers keep eating all of them.

  2. Looks amazing! Sadly, I have no poppy seeds, but once I remedy that situation, I will be attempting to create this!

    Thanks for the inspiration!
