Poppy Seed Cake

Poppy Seed Cake ~ Moist, buttery poppy seed cake drizzled in a yummy glaze! via

I love poppy seed muffins, cakes or really anything so when I was flipping through my brand spankin’ new 101 Farmhouse Favorites cookbook from Gooseberry I knew this Poppy Seed Cake was calling my name. It started off with a cake mix and just added a few simple things to really dress it up.

101 Farmhouse Favorites

What I loved about it was it didn’t have lemon in it. Now I adore lemon but my husband, not so much and I’m always trying to please him! {Sarcasm here people!}
