Orange Poppy Seed is a holiday classic and a small loaf makes a thoughtful gift.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare two 9″ x 5″ bread pans by rubbing with butter and then flouring the pans. You can also use a cooking spray for baking (with the flour already in the spray.)
Mix together the dry ingredients, including sugar. Add eggs, oil, milk, poppy seeds, vanilla, almond extract and imitation butter flavor. Mix together and beat for 2 minutes.
Pour batter into bread pans and bake for 55 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
While bread is baking, make the glaze. Whisk together sugar, orange juice, vanilla, almond extract, and imitation butter extract. Set aside.
When bread comes out of the oven and is still hot, pour glaze evenly over bread. Allow bread to completely cool in the pans before removing them.
This recipe is great for mini loaves and makes 6.
Batter can be doubled if you mixer is large enough—great when making loaves for gifts.
When pouring glaze, place pans on a cooling rack placed over a cookie sheet, as the dried glaze is hard to remove from a counter!
Chocolate zucchini bread loaded with chocolate chunks and drizzled with an orange-infused chocolate glaze.
These beauties are nutrient-dense, full of healthy fats, protein and antioxidants. And not to mention, with staying power to keep you fueled well until lunchtime. Be sure you don’t skip the cinnamon in these muffins. Not only does cinnamon have several wonderful health-related effects on the body, but it is magic when paired with blueberries.
I will admit that I adore traditional banana nut bread, but I always feel as though there is something missing. In this recipe, I added cinnamon and nutmeg to provide a warmth and depth of flavor that cannot be achieved any other way. For those of you who say, “I do not like bananas,” you should still give this recipe a try. My husband said that it reminded him of carrot cake!
