"Tuesday's with Dorie" - Poppy Seed Torte

 "Poppy Seed Torte" ? 
The images you find of this recipe on the Internet are very deceiving..
The recipe we are using is in Dorie Greenspan's book entitled "Baking with Julia", and there are a couple of changes that I made. The first one being that I only used 1 cup of poppy seeds and we passed on the apricots, (even though in the end I realized how yummy the apricots would have made it ) we have tried them before and they are not a hit among our boys, so my torte is adorned with lemon flavored sugar and candy slices.

  1. I know...I poked around online to see if anyone else had blogged about this cake before I made it...looks like we are the first! Glad you gave it a try.

  2. I like the candy slice addition. I hope it was well enjoyed :-)
    This was one interesting cake, but I am glad we tried it! It turned out delicious.

  3. The lemon and candy slices look good. Great idea.
