poppyseed cake and a great time

I had a party on friday night :)...
In honor of a dear friend visiting and in order to get to know my neighbors better!
fun women, great desserts, free flowing wine. Here's to a good time!
in love. trish
This cake harkens back to my high school days of babysitting. A family I used to sit for had this on the counter one night as I watched TV and listened to sleeping-baby-gurgles on the monitor. I indulged in a hefty piece and was hooked-I asked for the recipe. The original version was made with a yellow cake mix. I've modified it since!

poppyseed cake
1 3/4c cake flour
1/4 t baking soda
1 3/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1 small pkg vanilla instant pudding
1/3 c butter
1 c sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c sour cream
1 t vanilla
1/3 c poppyseeds
1/3 c cooking sherry

sift flour, soda, baking powder, pudding and salt into a medium bowl. In another bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla, sherry, sr cream and eggs to butter mixure and blend well. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour wet mixture into it. Blend these well then add poppyseeds. Pour batter into a buttered bunte cake pan. Bake 35 minutes at 350 degrees or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Allow to cool 30 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely then glaze with 1/4 c powdered sugar, 1T milk mixed glaze. Indulge!
