Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 7x3 inch loaf pans and set aside. (You can also use a 9x5 just increase baking time).
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and poppyseeds. Stir until combined. In a separate medium sized bowl add the milk, vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla, almond extract, and lemon zest.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated. Pour into loaf pans and bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove and let bread cool.
To make the lemon almond glaze:
Whisk together powdered sugar, heavy cream, and lemon juice. Drizzle over bread and top with sliced almonds.
