      Delicious coffee cake . Love the combination of the cocoa and sugar. I did omitt the cinnamon.I drizzled a light glaze over it,other than that followed the recipe. Thanks Gerry for sharing this wonderful recipe which will call for many repeats.

      Another winner Gerry! I was super excited to try this one because I had collected real poppy seeds from my garden last season, from the Papaver somniferum plant, and was trying this recipe out as an experiment (which I wrote about on my blog). The results were wonderful! Only advice, if using a bundt you might want to consider using only a single layer of filling for a more prominent effect. Thanks so much!
