Strawberry and Poppy Seed Cake (without the poppy seeds) from BBC Good Food June 2013 issue

I made this cake for my mother’s birthday on a glorious summer’s day. I missed out the poppy seeds as I was afraid of objections from children and did not want to spoil their enjoyment of this cake. I’d definitely make it with the poppy seeds otherwise, as they are good for texture as well as flavour.

A sponge cake with fruit in is always popular, and this one was no exception. It worked well as a birthday cake and with all the layers looked very festive. It was moist and was good for something which works as a pudding or a cake.
