Lemon Poppy seed cake.


1 pkg yellow cake mix
1 cup water
1/2 c vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 sm pkg lemon pudding mix
4 T poppy seeds
Mix dry ingredients together well. Add the water and oil, beat eggs in one at a time.
Pour batter into a well greased bunt pan and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Cool cake in pan for a 10 minutes then turn onto a cake rack or plate to cool.
You can make a glaze for it if you like.
1 cup sifted powder sugar
3/4 t lemon juice
a small amount of lemon peel
If you want it yellow you can add a few drops of yellow food coloring, I would never put dye in my food though. :o)

I know it has been awhile, my mixer broke and it has me in a slump since it cost so much to fix. I have had nothing but problems with Kitchen aide they are made so cheaply anymore and cost so much to fix. I would tell everyone if you make breads and need a heavy duty mixer, Kitchen aide is not the way to go.
So I figure I would make something simple, a year after I was married I really started cooking more. My husband came home from work one day and told me about this really good cake one of the guys at work made and how much he loved it. Well I got the recipe and made it for him. So the other day I found the photo album that I put together about 27 years ago with recipes in it and I found that recipe. So needless to say I ran to the store and got the stuff to make it. Well really I drove to the store...:o)
So last night when he came home from work and cut a piece and ate it I asked him what he thought about it, he told me it was really good and then I asked him if it reminded him of anything, he knew right off.
