I'm so glad that you decided to share this recipe. I will never have to look further for another poppy seed cake recipe. It was absolutely delicious. This cake is so moist it melts in your mouth. I did glaze it with a poppy seed glaze. I used 1 cup of powdered sugar, 2 Tbl spoons milk, a dash of vanilla extract and a tsp of poppy seeds and while the cake was still warm not hot I drizzled the glaze over the cake. Awesome! Natalie

This is a great tasting, moist, easy, and big cake that even my husband (who NEVER cooks) made with much success for his tennis club pot luck supper.I've tried other more complicated "from scratch" poppy seed cakes and this is better in addition to being quick. Already have made it several times.

I took this to work, for a bake sale, and came away with an empty plate. Everyone loved it, and commented on how moist it was. I tinkered with the recipe a tad, adding the fresh zest of one orange to the batter. Also, going on some of the other reviews, I made a simple glaze of powdered sugar and orange juice, with a little orange zest added in, and drizzled that over the cake. Yum!!
