I love the movies made from books such as "Jane Eyre." Often, they seem to eat "seed cake" and are very happy to have it. I could not find a recipe for that cake, so made up my own. This little cake is tender, sweet, but not cloyingly sweet, and makes a lovely addition to a tea party.

Ingredients

1 1/4 c
whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 c
plain full-fat yogurt
2 tsp
blue poppy seeds
1/2 c
honey
1/2 c
butter, softened

1/4 tsp
freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp

Step-By-Step

1Sift the whole wheat flour, first, to remove larger pieces of bran, if not using whole wheat pastry flour. Butter and flour a 1 1/2 quart pyrex baking dish.
2Cream butter and honey together in a medium sized mixing bowl.
3Beat eggs in, one at a time.
4Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and salt. Stir in the poppy seeds.
5Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternately with the yogurt.
6Pour into prepared baking dish.
7Bake at 350 F until it tests done with a toothpick. Remove from oven, cool 10 minutes in pan, and then invert onto cooling rack.
8This little cake keeps well. I never frost it.
