I made this for a co-worker friend's birthday. She likes lemon desserts, and they have to have a lot of lemon flavor, but not the in-your-face kind. She also had associated lemon poppy seed cakes or loaves with dryness, and she wanted a moist cake. This dessert knocked the socks off of everybody at work, and the birthday girl loved it! I made 2 cakes, so I could taste it to make sure it would be a hit, and even bought a package of Costco lemon bites, which she loves, as a backup dessert, in case the cakes didn't turn out. I only had a tall bottle of poppy seeds, so I used half in each cake, which came out to less than 1/4 c. per cake and it was perfect. I would make this cake again anytime. My friend thought it was good enough to be served at a wedding reception. My family of chocoholics loved it, too! I cooked it for 35 minutes and the toothpick came out clean. When I cut it, however, the cake looked undercooked. However, it tasted fine and I think that added to its moistness. It was delicious!
