Almond Poppy Seed Bread with Orange Glaze

I love almond flavored pastries and breads! I have been wanting to make an almond poppy seed bread forever and finally got around it it! Even better this made two loaves and was delicious!!!! This recipe is from Princess in the Kitchen.

3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup poppy seeds
1 1/3 cup canola oil
3 room temperature eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract

1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cups confectioners’ sugar

Heat oven to 350.  Grease two 9-5 loaf pans and set to the side.  In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder, sugar and poppy seeds.  In a separate bowl whisk together the canola oil, eggs, milk, vanilla extract and almond extract.  Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the wet mixture.  Stir until combined.  Divide the batter into the loaf pans.  Bake for 1 hour until a tooth pick comes out clean.  Cool the bread for 10 to 15 minutes then remove from pans and place on a wire rack with foil or wax paper underneath the rack.  In a medium size bowl add the confectioners' sugar and slowly whisk in the juices.  Glaze the bread while it is still warm.
