On our Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast website there is a mouth-watering image of a cake with fresh fruit and a drizzle of whipped cream.  Since I get a lot of comments on this photo, I thought I would share the recipe with everyone.  This cake is moist, rich and bright.

Orange Poppy Seed Cake with Fruit Salad
Preheat oven to 325.  Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan.

Sift together and set aside:
 3 c. flour
 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
 1/2 tsp. baking soda
 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
Cream together:
 3/4 c. butter, softened
 2 c. sugar
 About 2 T. zest from 2 oranges
Add:
 1/3 c. poppy seeds
 5 eggs (room temp), one at a time
Combine:
 1/2 c. buttermilk
 1/2 c. fresh orange juice
 1 tsp. vanilla

Add flour mixture and buttermilk mixture to butter mixture alternately, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 55 minutes.  Let cool on wire rack 20 minutes; remove from pan and let cool completely.

Glaze
Combine in saucepan and simmer until syrupy:
 1/4 c. sugar
 1/4 c. orange juice

Brush glaze over cake.

Serve with fresh fruit – a combination of berries or a variety of citrus. 
Add a little sugar and a splash of orange liqueur.
Chill until ready to serve.

When serving don’t forget to add a dollop of freshly whipped cream or vanilla yogurt.

Would love to hear your results.

I’ll look forward to seeing you soon,
Linda
