Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

I made this last night. It was my first time cooking with poppy seeds. I like the delicate crunch they give the lemon cake. This is a very simple recipe. It's moist and delicious. I'm a fan. I found this recipe here.

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake:
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) lemon cake mix

1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
1 cup water
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup poppy seeds
2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons lemon juice


In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water and oil; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Fold in poppy seeds. Transfer to a greased and floured 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

For drizzle, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, water and lemon juice; drizzle over cake. Yield: 15 servings.
