Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine the first 5 ingredients. Add eggs, milk, oil and extracts. Pour into your loaf pans. Bake for 45-1 hour depending on the size of your loaf pans. COOL COMPLETELY in the pans!

After the bread has cooled completely in the pans. Mix up your glaze.

In a saucepan, bring glaze ingredients to a boil. Pour over the bread in the pans. Cool 5 minutes. NO LONGER, otherwise the bread will not come out of the pans. Remove bread from pan and cool further.

This bread freezes well when you  have unexpected company. Enjoy!
