Poppyseed Bread

This bread is fantastic!!  It has great flavor and is really moist.  I honestly didn't think my kids would try it, let alone like it.  A look at poppyseeds in the bread and I thought they'd stay away, but my kids LOVED this bread and begged for more.  I could bribe them with it.   I'm sure this would make great muffins, too.
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3 eggs
1cup plus 2 Tbsp. cooking oil
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 T. poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp butter flavoring extract 
Glaze:
2 Tbsp. orange juice
1/4 cup, plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp butter flavor extract

 For the bread: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients together. Pour into greased and floured baking pans. Makes 6 small loaves or 2 large loaves. (I made 4 small loaves and 1 larger loaf)

 Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes for large pans and less for smaller pans. (My small pans were done around 40 minutes, my large one around 50)

For the Glaze:
Pour all ingredients into a small saucepan and let cook on stove on medium heat until sugar dissolves. Remove bread from pans and pour glaze over warm bread. Use knife or spatula to bring the glaze that has run off up and over the warm bread until it stays on.
