This recipe is just like a cake I tasted on an outing with my mom to go school shopping. We stopped at a restaurant in Pioneer Square and enjoyed this for dessert. It is very dense and moist.more
can Poppy Filling (Solo brand Poppy Seed Filling)
cup sour cream
cups sifted flour
tsp baking soda
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add Poppy Seed Filling. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in vanilla and sour cream. Sift together flour, soda and salt, add gradually to poppy mixture, beating well after each addition. Fold in stiffly-beaten egg whites. Pour into a greased 9 or 10 inch tube pan, which has the bottom lined with waxed paper. Bake in a moderate oven (350*) about 1 hour and 15 to 20 minutes or until done. Allow cake to cool about 5 minutes. Remove from pan and peel off paper. Decorate by sifting confectioner's sugar through a paper doily or a cut-out on the top of the cake.
