    justcallmetoni's Note:

    This was a graduate school favorite that I recently dug out of a very old box of recipe clips. I have no idea where the recipe originated but have fond memories of sitting with my housemates in the kitchen eating hot slabs of this cake right out of the oven.

      I love the tons of poppy seeds in this, and lemon zest was a great addition! For some reason mine was on the dry side; difficult to cut without the edges crumbling. (Possibly my eggs were too small?) The batter seemed fine, and the cake still tastes really good. I topped with raspberry toffee sauce #142631. I'm going to try freezing the second loaf. Thanks for sharing!

      This is delicious. Added a little more milk since Kaarin said it was a little dry and the extra milk made the cake perfect. Thanks for sharing. ;-))

      Just wanted to add that the original Moosewood recipe calls for brown sugar and says to bake in two well-greased bread pans. I like the look of Tina and Dave's photo and am going to make it that way right now!
