To give this cake a decorative edge, I decided to bake it in my silicone Bundt pan instead of a loaf pan. And since I like poppy seeds, I decided to double the amount, and use 2 Tbsp. I baked it last night but didn't taste it until today. The orange flavor, which I love, came through very well. The crunch of the extra poppy seed was also welcomed. Unfortunately, I wasn't too fond of the texture. Although it was moist, it was too dense for my taste. Despite this little hiccup, I still had fun making the cake. Using a whole orange was a fun experiment. If you would like to try this recipe for yourself, please find the recipe here.
