I only used 1/4 cup of poppy seeds as I really hadn't noticed the 1 cup called for when I selected this recipe for PAC. I also had to sub red plum jam. The cake was okay, but I am sure not what the chef intended. I did find that it was sweet enough and loved the cinnamon. I hope I can find the correct ingredients so I can try it as written.
