Poppy Seed Bread

This one’s an oldie but a goodie.  A hand me down of sorts.  I have no idea where this recipe came from but I certainly can’t take credit for it.  It’s one of those you find handwritten in your recipe binder.  What you don’t have a recipe binder?  With page protectors?  Have I mentioned I can be a little OCD?  Anywhoozles, if you know where this came from, let me know so I can thank them profusely and scream it out to the world.  Super moist even a day or two later and has some added sweetness thanks to the glaze.  I adore the way this bread smells (thank you almond extract!) and want to bottle it up.  Paired with fun jams from 1999 because I’ve been making it since then.
