Orange Poppy Seed Bread

This is the perfect amount of sweetness for a snack!  Another great reason to try it?  It only takes 1 bowl to mix.  :)

Orange Poppy Seed Bread - makes 2 loaves
(adapted from Tasty Kitchen)

3 cups flour
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 1/8 cups vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups milk
2 heaping tsp poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 tsp imitation butter flavor
zest from 1 orange

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp imitation butter flavor

-Preheat oven to 350 and spray two 9x5 inch pans with baking spray (like Pam w/ flour.)
-Mix together the dry ingredients.  Add the remaining (non-glaze) ingredients and beat for 2 minutes.
-Pour the batter into the pans and bake 55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
-While the bread is baking, whisk the glaze ingredients together.
-As soon as you take the bread out of the oven, poke holes all over it with a skewer.  Pour the glaze evenly over the top.
-Cool completely before removing from the pans.
