Poppy Seed Cake – a quick and easy cake recipe that comes together in minutes. Moist, delicious, and great for dessert, or with a cup of coffee.
Do you ever have those things on your list of things you want to make that for some reason you just never do? I have a couple of them on my list, and I can’t figure out why I never just bite the bullet and make them. I am trying to cross a few of them off my list this year. So far I made a crock pot dessert (Hot Fudge Crock Pot Brownies), kicking myself for not trying it sooner. And now this. A cake in a bundt pan. Kind of a silly one, but what can I say, the stupid pan intimidated me! But I conquered it and it came out perfect!
So yeah, for some reason a bundt pan has been intimidating to me for awhile. I asked for one for Christmas a few years ago, and received it. But it has just sat in my cupboard ever since. Staring at me every time I go in there. It was time I took control. And this poppy seed cake was the result. So easy! And look, it came out perfectly. I greased it like it was going out of style, and then also added a coating of sugar. Seriously, I am just shocked at how easy the cake came out of the pan. I worried and put it off for no reason at all! Plus the sugar gave the poppy seed cake a really nice crust.
This recipe was given to me by my friend, Suzanne. She makes it for all the new neighbors that move onto her street. How nice is that, I want to move to her street! I added a little glaze when I made it because I am all about frosting! And if you really want to mix things up I think adding a little almond extract to this poppy seed cake would be amazing. The cake is light, airy, and delicious. Plus super pretty with all the poppy seeds running through the cake.
