Glazed Cinnamon-Raisin Tea Bread

recipe
Ground flaxseed, found in the baking or organic foods aisle, enhances this loaf with iron, vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids. For best results, measure the flour, sugars, and ground flaxseed the same way. Toasting the nuts heightens their flavor so we can call for less.

Bread:
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup golden raisins
2 cups hot water
3/4 cup fat-free buttermilk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 ounces)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon baking powder

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

To prepare bread, cover raisins with 2 cups hot water in a medium bowl; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Drain.

Combine buttermilk and next 5 ingredients (through egg white) in a large bowl; stir with a whisk until well blended. Stir in raisins.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 6 ingredients (through nutmeg), stirring with a whisk. Add flour mixture to buttermilk mixture, stirring just until moist. Spoon batter into an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

To prepare glaze, combine powdered sugar, 1% milk, and juice, stirring until smooth. Drizzle glaze evenly over bread; immediately sprinkle with almonds.
