Excellent poppy seed cake, its won many blue ribbons in the 50 years that I've been making it.
The only difference between your recipe and mine is that I make my own poppy seed filling instead of using canned. Oh, and the baking powder seems to be missing from the ingredients - was that intentional?

Thanks for posting - I haven't made it in years, but it was always such a hit. (Even for those who say they don't like poppyseed.)

I have been making this cake for 30 years and you are so right.....it is wonderful. Moist and tasty to say the least. People who have never tried poppyseed should make this cake!! They would become poppyseed lovers in a flash!

An awesome cake with always many compliments no matter where I serve it! I have been enjoying this cake since I was a child as my mother baked it frequently. Even as a child I loved it and would ask her to make it for my birthday cake. It does not need any icing other than the dusting of powdered sugar. The density of the cake is perfect and it's always very moist. I have never had this recipe fail on me... it is always a crowd pleaser!

I love this recipe for poppy seed cake. My grandma was the one who used to bake them every year. It really reminds me of her. Also we used the solo filling for making kolaches!

I love this cake.. I have made it for years. It turns an ordinary day into a special occasion. My friend Malva shared this recipe with me years ago..it was her son's favorite dessert. I have even sent it to my kids when they were away @ college!

Love, Love, Love this recipe. I used to make this cake as Christmas gifts to my friends, who loved it! Then, I somehow lost the recipe. I just recently found it again on the Solo Poppy Seed label. Thank you Solo!
