Almond Poppy Seed Bread

I've been wanting to make something sweet for a while now and finally decided on this delicious poppy seed bread.

 For Bread:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
1/2 plus 1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 1/8 cups sugar
3/4 cup milk
3/4 tablespoon poppy seeds
3/4 tsp. almond extract
3/4 tsp. vanilla
3/4 tsp. butter extract

For Glaze:
1/8 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1/4 tsp. butter extract
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

(*Note: The reason that some of my measurements may seem funny is because I only made half a recipe (1 loaf) instead of 2 loaves, which follows the original recipe.)

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease loaf pan and set aside.

2. Mix all ingrediants together. Pour into prepared loaf pan.

3. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

4. Cool bread in pan slightly before transferring to plate. Pour glaze over warm bread. Enjoy!

To make glaze: Heat all ingredients in saucepan and cook on medium until sugar is dissolved.
