Why I Love This Recipe

Great special occasion cake! Can be made as a 2 tier or 4 tier layer cake or a sheet cake.


Ingredients You'll Need

CAKE
1Jar Poppy Seeds, soaked in 1C Milk
4 Egg whites, whipped
1box White Cake Mix
------------------------------------------------
ICING
Cream:
4 Egg yolks
3/4C Sugar
1tsp. Cornstarch
Add:
1C Milk
1tsp. Vanilla

Topping:
1C Chopped Pecans


Directions

Soak poppy seeds in 1C milk for two hours in refrigerator. Drain off most of the milk.


Make White Cake Mix to package directions, but use 4 egg whites and add drained poppy seeds.


Cook according to directions. Remove cake from 9" pans and cool on rack.


To make frosting, cream yolks, sugar and cornstarch then add milk and vanilla. Cook approximately 25 minutes on med/high heat stirring constantly. This is a custard type frosting that needs to be thickened to a point where it will not run off the cake.


Top with chopped pecans.
