Carol's notes for this recipe:
One of my favorite cakes, tried many recipes for it and never tasted as good as I wanted it to. Well found this one that is the best so far.

Preheat oven to 350 degreesF
Combine cake mix, vanilla pudding, water, sour cream, eggs, almond extract, oil and poppy seeds in a large bowl. Mix until combined.
Spray your Bundt pan with non-stick spray and coat with cinnamon sugar.
Pour batter into pan and generously sprinkle some more cinnamon and sugar on top.
Bake at 350 degrees f 30-40 minutes (watch carefully the first time)

This cake will be done when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cake cool for 15 minutes and
turn over onto plate. Enjoy!

I sometimes frost with conf. sugar and milk and lemon extract frosting.
