Recipes don’t always have to be super-detailed and in depth. You shouldn’t have to work super hard for something to really be delicious. I personally love having some go-to recipes in my arsenal that I can throw together in a pinch. This is Poppy Seed Cake one of these recipes.

I’m not exactly sure where the recipe originated and to be honest, I can’t remember the name of the person who passed it on to us (Mom- if you’re reading this and remember, please let me know!). It’s basically a doctored up cake mix recipe. But the results are so moist and full of flavor. I have a very difficult time keeping J away from it the minute it leaves the oven.

There are so many possibilities for this cake. I’d like to try chocolate (!). I tried it with chocolate, which was amazing! In the past I’ve made this in a Bundt Pan, but I split this particular one between two Loaf Pans as one was a gift for a friend who sends me the most delicious cheeses and the other was for dessert for dinner with some family. It looks extra pretty if you sift some confectioner’s sugar over the top of it right before you serve it.
