1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 c
poppy seeds

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Blend with a wire whisk. Store the mix in an airtight jar.

Decorate as you wish. I put a pretty ribbon on and attach a small jar of Lemon extract.
Attach these instructions to the jar:

Lemon-Poppy Seed Cake

3/4 cup butter
6 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract (not lemon juice)
Zest of 1 lemon
1 jar Lemon Poppy-Seed Cake

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8- to 9-cup Bundt pan.

In the large bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the milk, extracts and lemon zest. The mixture will look curdled. Add the jar contents, and continue to beat on medium speed for 3 to 4 minutes until mixture is smooth. Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake for 45 to 55 minutes.

can add a glaze if desired
