  1. My best friend is half German, well no, her parents are German, but she lived most of her life in Spain or Spanish speaking islands before she moved to London. She would make poppy seed cakes all the time, only she would tell everyone they were opium cakes. Our guests would look at me, and I would shrug my shoulders and tell them her cakes were delicious and as far as I was aware had no unflattering side-effects.

    1. Poppy seeds give a special aroma to the cake. The cake is a bit unusual, but very tasty. I like it. Maybe the amount of ingredients is higher, so take only half a measure. Thank you for the wonderful comment, Jeff. I really appreciate. ☺️🍮🥧
