  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease three 8x4 inch bread pans.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, salt, baking powder, poppy seeds and 2 1/2 cups white sugar. Add the eggs, milk, oil, vanilla and lemon extract; mix until smooth, about 1 minute. Pour batter evenly into the prepared pans.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaves comes out clean. Cool loaves in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
  4. Combine orange juice with remaining 3/4 cup sugar and desired flavor of extract; stir well. Pour this mixture over the loaf while it is still hot. Allow loaf to cool completely before serving.

Excellent! I like this type of bread very lemony and very moist, so I added the juice and zest of one lemon to the batter, in addition to the lemon extract. I divided the glaze into two parts....

I've always believed the real fruit gives better flavor than extract, so I omitted the lemon extract and used the rind of 1 lemon, extracted the juice and added the milk to fill 1 1/2 cups. Thi...

Yummy! I did a few changes. Cut sugar to 2 cups. Cut the vanilla to 1 tsp. Cut the oil to just 1/2 cup (saves on calories). Used juice of 1 lemon plus enough milk to make 1 1/2 cups. Plus added ...
