Almond Tea Bread

Those little loaves just came out of the oven, and i can`t wait untill they are cooled, i`m eating one. Their looks are deceiving, they look like just another loaf of desert bread, untill you bite into a slice.
The above pic is a little blurry, but this is the one i am saving for ME. These are Almond Tea Bread, and I promise, if you serve this to guests, they will love it and they will love you for them.

Almond Tea Bread
Cream together: 2- 1/4 C. Sugar
3 eggs
1- 1/8 C. oil
Sift together, and add to above mixture alternately with 1-1/2 c. milk
3 C. all purpose flour
1- 1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
Add: 1-1/2 Tbls. poppy seeds
1-1/1 tsp. pure almond flavoring
1-1/2 tsp. pure butter flavoring
1-1/2 tsp. pure vanilla
Beat 1-2 minutes
Pour into greased and floured bread pans
Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes (do not overbake)
Remove from oven, and while still warm glaze with:
3/4 C sugar
1/4 C orange juice
1/2 tsp. each of almond, butter, and vanilla flavoring
This makes 5 small loaves
This bread goes so fast i usually make a double batch...........you`ll love it!

I have never bought almond butter. What aisle is that on or where do I get it?

And is real butter flavoring in a jar like vanilla? I have never bought it either.

Your bread looks scrumptious!

Dana, it is pure almond, and pure butter flavoring, it can be found next to the vanilla flavoring in your grocery store. And the bread is scrumptious, you`ll love it.

Jettie, wish i could but, it would be stale by the time it reached you.......but one day, maybe i`ll bring you some in person
