Simply wonderful! No poppy seeds so used 1 tablespoon anise seeds in its place. I used the cinnamon/sugar mixture for a totally fabulous cake. Next time I will make sure I have poppy seeds! Thanks for sharing!

I drizzled a bit of poppy seed frosting over this that I made with milk, icing sugar, vanilla and poppy seed. YUMMY. I will be adding this one to my regular rotation, thanks so much for posting. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag game.
