Blood Orange Poppy Seed Cake
Over the past weekend I decided to make this cake-and it’s gorgeous! We had dinner at my mother in laws and my parents came too. Naturally, I HAD to made a cake. Any excuse I can get! What can I say-I have a serious baking addiction. I adore anything citrus so of course I loved this cake:) It is fairly dense, but the orange zest gives it a delicious flavor. It reminded me of my cranberry orange poppyseed cookies. The two cake layers are sandwiched in-between a blood orange & white chocolate filling. Oh boy, oh boy! It balances out the cake nicely & and gives it an irresistible flavor. If your looking for a good cake, look no further:D
for the cake:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour 2 six-inch spring foam pans.
In a medium sized bowl, combine all the dry ingredients together-flour, baking soda, blood orange zest & poppy seeds.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg & sugar until pale & frothy. Add the melted butter & combine all the dry ingredients until well incorporated.
Distribute the batter evenly between the two cake pans.
Bake on the bottom oven rack for 35-40 minutes or until a cake tester is inserted in the middle and comes out clean.
