It’s a fight when Ty’s home to see who gets the last bite… This recipe is a MUST!! SOOOO incredible!

Almond Tea Loaf

 

In the bowl of a mixer add:

  • 2 ½ cups of sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/8 cup oil (extra virgin olive oil)

Cream the above ingredients.  In another bowl combine the following:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

Add these dry ingredients alternately with 1 ½ cups of milk to the creamed ingredients.

Add:

  • 1 ½ Tablespoons fresh poppy seeds
  • 1 ½ teaspoons almond flavoring
  • 1 ½ teaspoons butter flavoring
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla flavoring

Mix until just blended. This recipe makes 1 large loaf or 4 medium loaves (grease pans for easier removal).  Bake at 350⁰ for 40-45 minutes. Use a tooth-pick to check for doneness.

In the meanwhile, in a small bowl- add the following ingredients & whisk:

  • ½ teaspoon almond flavoring
  • ½ teaspoon butter flavoring
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla flavoring
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice
  • ¾ cup sugar

As soon as the loaves are done & out of the oven- top with the above sugar sauce. YUM!!!
