Orange Poppy Seed Cake



I love the whole idea of Spring, the hills are bright green, my tulip bulbs are starting to show, rain is happening which is something we don’t have enough of! I thought a bright dessert would coincide with the season. Citrus is a favorite of mine, it’s so bright and cheerful! This cake has the perfect blend of tang and sweetness. Happy March to you all!
