The first Tuesday with Dorie - Baking Chez Moi recipe for this year is Saint-Pierre Poppy Seed Cake. The cake is named after a café where Dorie's husband and his friend found a poppy seed cake that they loved and asked Dorie to replicate.
The cake is flavoured, not only with poppy seeds, but also with orange zest and juice, making it tender and moist.
Dorie says the cake should have a rustic split on top - mine did not:
I don't think the absence of a split mattered at all, and the cake tasted quite good, regardless.
If you are a fan of poppy seed cake, you are likely to enjoy this one.
