Every family has holiday traditions that are sentimental. This Poppy Seed Bread is that for us! Our great aunt Boline’s parents emigrated from Denmark and they brought this recipe with them. We’ve grown up eating it every Christmas (and sometimes a few months in between). It’s certainly a holiday tradition that we would never miss!
The original recipe called for butter flavor which we do not eat. However, we have become very skilled at altering tasty recipes to have all clean and pure ingredients. No flavor has been lost in the alteration either! It’s every bit as tasty and is now a healthy treat for the whole family. Put this with some Secret Ingredient Hot Cacao, some Last Minute Christmas Bark or even some Spinach Bacon and Artichoke Dip and you are ready for any Christmas party!
Great Aunt Boline's Poppy Seed Bread
Poppy Seed Bread
- 3 ½ cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. Real Salt
- 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
- 3 eggs
- 1 ½ cups honey
- 1 Tbs. vanilla
- 1 cup melted butter
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 1 Tbs. poppy seeds
- 2 tsp. almond extract
Combine all ingredients in a KitchenAid or Bosch mixer and mix well. Divide between 2 greased bread pans. Bake at 350º for 45-60 minutes. Watch closely. If the edges start to get brown turn oven down to 325º. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes. Remove from bread pans onto cooling racks and glaze while hot.
Whisk powdered sugar and vanilla together in a glass measuring cup adding enough milk to make a thin glaze (it should be thin enough to easily pour over the bread). Whisk thoroughly to insure there are no lumps.
