Recipe 29: POPPYSEED CAKE (Dessert)

SOURCE:  This is one of my moms oldies but goodies recipes.  She has been making this since before I was born.  It is their "go-to" dessert for family reunions, church functions, house warming etc. One time when peter was in the hospital my dad made this cake and gave it to the nurses. Those ladies (and one Mr Mike) polished off that bad boy and raved about it for weeks afterwards.
this is one of my moms most requested recipes from friends and family. She submitted it for our family cookbook and that page is well worn!!

The best part: no frosting necessary. It has a great flavor and is really easy.


Mix together:  1 box yellow cake mix
                       1 small box instant vanilla pudding

to this add:       4 eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition
                        1 tsp Almond Extract
                         1 cup Hot water
                         2 TBSP Poppy Seeds

pour into well greased Bundt Pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
cool and remove from pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired (Good without it too!)
