    Pink Princess's Note:

    This is from the side of a packet of sugar - need to throw it out, so I'm posting it for safe keeping. When I do make it, if I have some spare calories in my diet, I'll be making a lemon cream cheese frosting with poppy seeds in it instead of just dusting with icing sugar.

      I made this cake as is except I used orange juice in place of the milk and only used 1/8 cup poppy seeds as I thought it looked enough in the batter. I used a square baking pan which is my preference and the cake came out light and fluffy. The only other change I would make is to add a bit more zest for more orange flavour or add orange icing. Good recipe!
