Poppy Seed Bread

This is yet another recipe from my mom's recipe collection. Can you tell where I got my love of cooking from? When my son tasted it he said "this isn't bread, this is cake!" I would have to agree, it's more of a dessert bread, but really it's just delicious!-Sarah

1 1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 t. baking powder
2 1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk

1 1/2 t. almond extract
