Orange Poppyseed Cake - February 7, 2009
I've always loved poppyseed cake, although traditionally it's been lemon poppyseed. I tried this one for something different since it's orange poppyseed cake. This recipe is from Perfect Cakes by Nick Malgieri. It came out pretty well albeit not that orangey. The orange syrup soaked in but didn't make the cake wet, just moist. I was afraid of it making the texture soppy but it didn't. Overall, I'd give it a thumbs up. The texture is just right for a cakey cake, not dense like a pound cake or too light like a chiffon.
