Poppyseed bundt cake

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Butter (or margarine)
1½ cup Sugar
2½ cup Flour (sift before measuring)
1 teaspoon Baking soda
2 teaspoons Baking powder
1 cup Buttermilk
2 ounces Poppy seeds (about 1/4 cup)
1 teaspoon Almond extract (or vanilla extract)
4 \N Eggs (separated)
¼ cup Brown sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon

Soak poppyseed in the buttermilk for 15 minutes.

Cream together butter and sugar. Add yolks to creamed mixture. Add almond extract or vanilla. Add dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk mixture, a little at a time.

Beat egg whites very stiff as for angel food. Fold egg whites into mixture. Pour half of this batter mixture into well-greased Bundt pan.

Sprinkle with a mixture of about ¼ cup brown sugar and about 1 t cinnamon. Pour in remaining batter. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 1 hour. Cool and invert onto serving dish, then remove Bundt pan.


* A light, delicate cake -- I got this recipe from my mom. I'm not sure where she got it.

* When folding in egg whites, be gentle. Lift and turn the batter instead of using a stirring motion. Don't worry if a little bit of egg white remains unmixed; the egg whites will collapse if you mix it too much.

* I have tried both vanilla and almond extracts with this recipe, and prefer the former.

: Difficulty: easy to moderate (folding the beaten egg whites into the batter takes some skill).

: Time: 30 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooking, 1 hour cooling.

: Precision: Measure carefully.
