Since this moist cake keeps so well, you can make it the day before serving. It freezes beautifully, too. Flavored with almond extract and poppy seeds, it's great for taking to a picnic or potluck or to present as a hostess gift.

"The cake was so moist and so good! I can see how the ones daughter made it to Grand Champion at the ND state fair. Maybe I will have to see if my son would want to enter it in the county fair in WI. He has gotten merits on his foods in the past and wants to be a chef some day. I made the glaze but it was very runny and didn't stick to the cake anyways. The glaze was good though. I had the eggs at room temperature and I used rice milk at room temperature instead because my son has a severe milk allergy. I've been reading that at room temperature, eggs, butter, and milk bond and form an emulsion that traps air. During baking, the air expands, producing light, airy, evenly baked treats. I just put the eggs in warm water for about 15 minutes and warmed the milk in the microwave for about 25 seconds. It took the full 70 minutes to get done. Definitely a keeper!!!"
