  1. Greetings from Inverness. :)
    A stunning looking cake. I adore poppy-seeds and have now decided I don’t eat nearly enough of them! Will definitely try this one out.

  2. That cake is looking pretty good. Poppy seeds are and ingredient that I have not used all that much though I would like to try using them more.

  3. I have a ton of poppy seeds and about that many egg whites in the freezer! Thanks for posting this recipe. :) Looks great.

  4. No nieźle :)
    Wreszcie coś polskiego i na co dzień
    Smacznego :)
