 Ingredients List

  • ------------------------------------CAKE------------------------------------
  • 2 3/4 c Sugar
  • 1 c Corn oil
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 1 1/2 ts Vanilla extract
  • 3 c All-purpose flour
  • 2 tb Poppy seeds
  • 1 1/2 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 1/2 c Milk


1 c Powdered sugar
1/4 c Orange juice
1/4 ts Almond extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 12-cup bundt pan. In large
bowl of mixer, combine sugar, corn oil, eggs, vanilla and almond extracts.
Beat to blend. Combine and sift flour, poppy seeds, baking powder and salt
into separate bowl. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk into large
mixing bowl containing sugar mixture, beginning and ending with dry
ingredients. Mix to blend. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake
approximately 45 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted near center
comes out clean. Remove cake from oven and place pan on wire rack to cool
for 10 minutes.

Prepare glaze while cake is cooling: Whisk powdered sugar, orange juice
and almond extract together in a small bowl to blend. Turn out cake onto
rack or cake platter. Spoon glaze over warm cake and allow cake to cool
completely before slicing.

From The Uptown Cafe in Butte, MT

Note: This poppy seed cake, which works in low or high altitudes without
adjustment, will keep a number of days in a covered container on the
counter top and freezes well unglazed. Serve it plain for snacking, glazed
for desserts or with orange slices for breadfast.
