Poppyseed Cake

DSC_0948BLOG

Here's a recipe that my mom made so many times through the years. 
Just the smell of it, let alone the taste of it, causes warm memories to come flooding back.
I think they call it "comfort food".

My bundt pan is a vintage treasure of mine. Given to me by my mom, in all its harvest gold glory! 
The scratches reveal that it has been well-loved. Bear with me as I show it off.

The recipe for this cake has always been, and still is, on the back of the label.

They call it "3 minute Delite" Poppyseed Cake. It really is quick and easy.
One of those recipes that you just dump everything into the mixer bowl and away you go.
