    Delicious cake,fast and simple to mix up and keeps beautifully (not that it ever stays around for very long!)

    This little German cake did great! It was moist and yellow. I was pleasantly surprised when the cake turned out as golden brown and lemon-y as I would like. At first I was unsure about baking with poppy seeds. However, after soaking only two tablespoons of them in milk for half an hour before adding them into the batter, the seeds did just fine. **I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe if looking to feed several.**
