Lovin' from the oven

My husband and I live on a college campus (what a unique experience!), and it's graduation weekend here, so I've been reflecting on my own commencement 6 years ago.

As a graduation gift, my mom gave me a homemade cookbook with favorite family recipes. Such a great idea--I use it often! I got the book out this morning and my mouth started watering upon seeing the poppy seed bread recipe. It's currently in the oven, and smelling delicious!

Here's to the graduates of '07!

3 c. flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
3 T. poppy seeds
1 1/4 c. oil
1 1/2 t. vanilla
2 c. sugar (I use slightly less)
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 t. almond flavoring

Simple, simple, simple: Combine all ingredients, and bake in 2 greased loaf pans for 55 minutes at 350 degrees.
