Poppy Seed Cake

1 cup oil
3 eggs
2-1/4 cups sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 cups milk
1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1-1/2 teaspoons butter flavoring
1 (2-1/2 oz) can poppy seeds

Glaze:
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine oil, eggs, and sugar in a large mixing bowl; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to egg mixture alternately with milk - beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix after each addition. Stir flavorings and poppy seeds. Pour batter into a well-greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. Bake at 350-degrees about 1 hour. Cool 10 minutes; remove pan, and place on serving plate. While warm, prick cake surface at 1-inch intervals with fork; pour glaze over cake. Glaze: Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl; beat at medium speed until well blended (mixture will be grainy).
