    Tried this tonight, and it's wonderful. Light, springy, very simple, baked up beautifully. My only issue is it stuck in my non-stick tube pan.. should have used aluminum or a little bit of shortening in the bottom. Will make it again.

    Can't get much better than this! Very moist, just sweet enough, and light and fluffy. I noticed this is my grandma's same recipe and people flock to the church bake sale just to buy her baked goods, and this one is in the batch. We never use frosting. So good w/o it! A "must-have" recipe. Freezes well too!

    This is my favorite cake. I have been making this cake for years but found this recipe stating that the poppy seeds be soaked in boiling water until cooled as opposed to soaking the poppy seeds overnight. I made this cake for DH's birthday and such a hit it was.Everyone loved it. I hadn't made a poppy seed chiffon cake for a year or so and after making and tasting this cake , I realized how much we enjoy this cake. So happy I found your version of this recipe that is so much shorter. Thank-you!!!
