Step 1

Soak poppy seeds in 1 1/4 c milk overnight.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 3

Beat egg whites.

Step 4

Cream lard, salt, sugar, honey, 3 egg yolks and vanilla together. Add dry ingredients; then add poppy seed mixture. When blended, fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Put in greased and floured cake pan.

Step 5

Bake until cake springs back when touched, about 40 minutes. Libby doesn't have exact time here folks. I was lucky to get measurements for her food--she's been doing it so long.

Step 6

For the frosting, combine butter and powdered sugar; then add lemon juice and milk. Spread on warm cake.
