Directions

1. Preheat oven to medium or medium low.

2. In a medium bowl, beat egg. Add oil, milk, vanilla and beat again.

3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and poppy seeds. Mix well.

4. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet, and mix until smooth.

5. Grease a loaf pan, and pour in the batter. Bake 50-60 minutes, watch the oven and turn it down if the bottom is burning. Cake is done when a knife or toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.

6. Cool in the pan, then turn onto a board and slice like bread to serve.

                                                              

Notes: This is a nice simple cake – most if the time is in the cooking, not the prep. It is perfect served as a sweet snack in the office or simple dessert without icing.

 

Variations: If you do want something sweeter/fancier, use a simple or lemon glaze* and sprinkle with toasted chopped almonds.
