This is the only NO FAIL cake recipe I have. This cake is moist, flavorful and touted to be the BEST poppy seed cake EVER.
This is another light, moist cake that's less sweet than most desserts as it is glazed rather than iced. Every single member of my family likes this cake.

Remember the lighter the color of an oil, usually the lighter the oil. I now use grape seed oil for all baking that calls for oil.
