Poppy Seed Bread

Several years ago, I did one of those chain mailing things that asked people to send so many recipes to the two people on the list, then put your name in this spot and mail it to this many people. Well, I really like trying new recipes, so this fun game was just up my alley. So I did just what I was supposed to do. Now if every person participated how they were supposed to, I was supposed to get like 64 recipes. I didn't think I would and I didn't. But I did get some from my sister-in-law, Kasi.

One of the recipes she sent me was for a Poppy Seed Bundt Cake. It sounded really easy and I thought I'd try it. It was very easy and sooooooooooooooo good!! Now-a-days, I usually make the recipe into loaves rather than a bundt cake. But either way you make it, it's really great! So to my sister-in-law, Kasi, who thinks she can't cook, thank you for this great recipe. We love it!!!!

Here's what you'll need:

1 yellow cake mix
1 (3 1/4 oz) pkg. French Vanilla pudding mix, dry
4 eggs
1 C. sour cream
1/2 C. water
1/2 C. butter
1 tsp. almond flavoring/extract
1 1/2 - 2 T. poppy seeds

Mix everything together. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes in a bundt pan or 2 loaf pans for 45-50 minutes or 8 mini loaf pans for 25-30 minutes. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

And here's a little trick for you. If you use a towel or paper towel and wipe down the top inch of your sprayed pans, removing the non-stick spray, you'll get a loaf with a pretty rounded top. Not like these ones that turned out pretty flat. = )

These loaves are always so flavorful and moist. Like I said, we LOVE them!!

yum, makes me want some! We never make it because Kev doesn't like it :( But maybe I will make the whole thing for myself.

Good plan, Kas. I totally would! Or make them into two loaves and give one to a friend or a neighbor.
