This post can be nicknamed- My Dream Dish! Yes it is a simple and egg-less bake,yet it is sort of dream-come-true bake.
Since the time I started this blog, it has been a great wish of mine to bake something with poppy seeds.Here we get the white / light brown colored one and they will not show up on the cake when bakes.
There are so many instances when I have been drooling over a lemon and poppy seed cake,dreamy eyed about the day when I would be baking the same in my kitchen.
And my wish / dream was fulfilled by dear Priya who asked us [BM buddies] what we wanted on her trip to India and I shamelessly asked her for black poppy seeds.
As soon as I got my share of the poppy seeds, this was the cake that I baked and this cake lived up to my dreams and expectations.
This cake was tried, tasted and approved by Lil Angel and hence this is going to be the first post for Blogging Marathon # 60,Week 3 , Day 1 with the theme Baked snacks for kids.
