Poppy Seed Coffee Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
I tasted this cake while visiting a friend in South Dakota. The memory of it stayed with me for years, until I finally called and asked her for the recipe. It was her mother’s recipe, and she was glad to share it. I’ve made it often since then, and it’s always a hit. Sometimes I’ll sprinkle the cake with powdered sugar, and slices are also good spread with butter.
