I love this recipe! I add almond extract to it and make it an almond poppy seed cake. I also like making a nice glaze out of melted butter, almond extract and powdered sugar, then I press sliced toasted almonds to the glaze. It makes such a pretty cake.
This cake was easy to make and the ingredients were on hand but had no flavour and tasted more like bread.
This is the easiest Poppyseed Cake recipe I have ever used! It is great. I added orange zest, and a orange glaze. So delicious, you won't go wrong with this gem.
My mother made poppyseed cake all during my youth, and this is the absolute closest I've ever tasted to those moist, aromatic, flavorful loaves she used to make. This recipe is a dream to make; very easy and everybody loves to eat it freshly sliced, toasted and spread with cream cheese, or split and sprinkled with liquer and fresh fruit and whipped creme. As another reviewer did, I served it with orange juice glaze (oj, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract). A little advanced warning: make it in two loaf pans and hide the second way back in the freezer. Otherwise, you could end up eating the whole tube pan in a few days!
I love this cake! The only thing I do different is grease and dust the bundt pan with sugar instead of flour. No frosting needed that way.
This is a nice basic cake for poppy seed lovers. I add 2 tsp. vanilla and some grated citrus peel. Good plain or dressed up with fruit or various sauces.
This was so delicious! I baked it for as two loaves, for a Christmas loaf exchange. Well let's just say I had to make more because my family insisted on taste testing before I gave it to someone else and they got eaten up. Very easy to make, very moist...just plain good!
This was EXCELLENT!!!! I have never made this type of cake before, but I will definately make it again! I did add half of a lemon and 1 tsp. lemon extract to make it different.
