    Ingredients:


    4 c. flour
    2 1/2 c. sugar
    4 eggs
    2 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 1/3 cup oil (I use canola)
    1 3/4 c. milk
    2 tsp. (or a little more) vanilla, almond extract and lemon extract.
    2 T. poppy seeds


    Topping:

    about 1/3 c. orange juice and confections sugar to make a glaze, poor over the top.

    They freeze very well. I have had them when taken out of the freezer for several months and they are just as good as day one.

    Cooking Instructions


    Mix them all together in a bowl with a mixer. Grease 2 bread pans, put mix in both pans. Preheat oven to 350, cook for an hour. Take out and cool.

    I got this recipe from a dear friend of mine, 80 years young, from Ireland. She makes dozens and dozens of these every year for Christmas presents.
