Glazed Almond Poppy Seed Bread

Delicious Glazed Almond Poppy Seed Bread - no yeast involved and so good! { }

Along with soup, I’m always craving warm bread in the Fall and Winter. It is just so yummy and warms the soul. Wouldn’t you  agree?

I hate to admit that I still don’t consider myself a “bread maker” because of my fear of yeast, but I’ve decided to conquer that in the coming year (promise)! Don’t know why it scares me so much. Probably just because I’ve never used it and it’s something I’m unfamiliar with. Fortunately, I just keep an eye out for the yummy bread recipes that don’t call for yeast, like this next one. It’s actually one my mom tried out for the family, and it reminds me of a yummier version of the Poppy Seed muffins you can get at Sams Club or Costco. I was pretty much sold on the recipe when I realized there was almond extract in it because it’s probably my most favorite ingredient EVER (like really – I try to throw it in everything)!!!

Doesn’t this bread look delicious?! I love poppy seed bread already but with a glaze on top it makes even more delicious.

I think I will make it this week. :)

    Ooo, YUM! This type of bread is one of my most favorite ever! Can’t wait to try your recipe! And there was a while ago that I used to dread making bread cause half the time I’d not get the yeast right but I’ve discovered SAF Yeast (which is actually pretty common) and it does NOT need to be proofed. You can put all the liquid ingredients in the bowl, then the dry, and the yeast on top of that, then just turn the mixer on and it’s perfect every time! Don’t even have to worry to closely about the temperature of the water! I just get it warm out of the faucet. It is fabulous!! (I do this with any recipe- cinnamon rolls, bread- even if the actual recipe says to proof the yeast in water with sugar first.)

    Up until recently I never knew poppy seed muffins had almond extract either and now I can’t get enough of it! I like the bread version, I think it will go very quickly in my home…mainly because of me!
