Poppy Seed Tea Bread

Years and years ago when Hubby and I were first married we were selected to go to a young farmer’s program in Minneapolis.  Back then we were milking cows and living near Stewartville, Minnesota selling the milk to Land o Lakes.

We had an awesome time and it was a much needed get away.  One of my parting gifts was this cook book.

It is a favorite of mine.  Some of our best recipes have come from it.  Besides my brownie recipe I think the next favorite is for this Poppy Seed Tea Bread.

I personally am not a huge fan of lemon poppy seed flavors.  This isn’t.  This is flavored with almond and completely yummy.  Here’s the recipe.

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter (I do use butter)
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 Tablespoon poppy seed
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla and extract.  Beat  on medium speed for 2-3 minutes.  Add remaining ingredients.  Beat for another 1-2 minutes.  Pour into a greased and floured bundt cake pan.  Bake for 50 – 60 minutes.  Cool 10 minutes then remove from pan.

It’s super moist and dense…just how we like things around here.

Give it a try…you might like it too.
