Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

"This recipe, passed down from my mother, is perfect for church or social functions. I can be made ahead (it freezes beautifully) and is not sticky or crumbly--that's important if you're trying to walk around and socialize."

  1. Place poppy seeds and buttermilk in a bowl; soak for 2 hours. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter until fluffy. Add sugar and egg yolks; beat well. Combine remaining dry ingredients; add alternately with poppy seeds/buttermilk to creamed mixture. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into batter; set aside. Combine filling ingredients; sprinkle one-third into bottom of a greased and floured 10-in. bundt pan. Pour in half of batter; "swirl" in half of remaining filling. Add remaining batter and filling; again swirling together. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Turn out immediately onto wire rack to cool.

This cake was not a hit at my dinner party. I made it exactly according to directions, and it was quite bland. I won't make it again - no one even finished one slice.

This cake is delicious. It disappeared when I took it with me to a family weekend. The cinnamon/cocoa/sugar swirl turned out beautifully and really added flavor. I did not rate it 5 stars bec...
