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. Read More

This cake was easy to make and the ingredients were on hand but had no flavour and tasted more like bread. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More
