Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes



  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup cooking oil (vegetable, canola, etc.)
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp poppy seeds
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds (optional)


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 4 tsp milk
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grease and flour two large bread pans.
  • Mix all of the ingredients together with a whisk in a large bowl (fold in sliced almonds last). Divide batter evenly among two pans.
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 to 60 minutes. NOTE: Dark metal pans require less baking time at a lower temperature (325 degrees Fahrenheit). Allow bread to cool in pan for 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack. Cool completely.
  • Mix all the ingredients for glaze (besides the sliced almonds) in a small bowl. Drizzle over the bread and immediately sprinkle with sliced almonds. Allow glaze to set before slicing. Store sliced bread in an airtight container up to 5 days.
