Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Recipe c/o Amy Hatfield

Hopefully this recipe is visible. I've heard that my text is invisible, maybe that's why my blog seems to be a ghastly ghost town* for comments... (or maybe it's just boring, alas I hope my life isn't that boring, it sure doesn't seem so to me)!
*Way too much Scooby Doo these days, actually who could ever get enough of Scooby & the gang? We love a good mystery around here!

INGREDIENTS
1/8-1/4 cup poppy seeds (depending on preference)
1/4 cup milk
1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant lemon pudding mix
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs


DIRECTIONS

Soak poppy seeds in milk for 2 hours (opt). Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.

In a large bowl, stir together cake mix and pudding mix. Make a well in the center and pour in water, oil, and eggs. Beat on low speed until blended. Scrape bowl, and beat 4 minutes on medium speed. Blend in poppy seed mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

I'm so glad you liked it Julie! It has been a while since I've made it, so now you've inspired me. It's good to know that someone is trying the recipes. :)

Jared's very favorite cake is a lemon cake with a similar recipe. We make it all the time. I'll have to try this one and see how they compare.

What kind of a glaze did you put on your cake? We put a lemon juice glaze on that is SO GOOD!

Melissa, it is just about 3/4 c. lemon juice, freshly squeezed & 2 cups powdered sugar. Super tasty!!!
