    I made this cake for my rum loving husband. I didn't expect to like it but found it OUTSTANDING! It was so easy to make and turned out very soft and sweet. I used a good quality rum which really added a nice flavor to the cake. I also liked the texture of the poppy seeds. I would say the whipped cream is a must it is so WONDERFUL with the cake flavors. I let it sit 2 hours before serving. My husband poured even more rum on his slice.

    I will definitely make this again and again. I love lemon cakes, and this was is a winner. It is so moist and delicious. I'm so glad I tagged this one in Cupid's choice. Made it yesterday and had the last slice this a.m. with my coffee. Thank you BK for sharing this wonderful cake.

    Used lime rind as I did not have any lemon at the time. I don't think the taste suffered any for this substitution. A lovely cake.
