I was looking for something sweet to make the other morning and came across a recipe for Poppy Seed Bread on The Girl That Ate Everything Blog. Her pictures were really wonderful.
The original recipe was almond flavoured which I don’t really care for. So I just increased the vanilla. The recipe also called for “butter” flavouring so I took care of that by using melted butter for most of the oil. I also changed the glaze.
The recipe, posted below has the changes I made. But you can find the original recipe here.

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons water

Add sugars and butter to small sauce pan. Add water.
Cook over low heat until sugars melt. Do not bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Poke holes in muffins/loaves. Spoon the warm butter glaze over cakes.
