Poppy Seed Pound Cake with Brown Butter Glaze | Pork Cracklins

Poppy Seed Pound Cake with Brown Butter Glaze

I was relieved to return to a simple Bundt cake for Baked Sunday Mornings this week. Bundt cakes are the best – simple, unpretentious, pretty. This one is citrus-kissed, with a deep crater of poppyseed filling running down the middle. There are a LOT of poppy seeds in there.

I think my favorite part of this cake is the glaze – it’s got a brown butter base, and it just makes the cake (which I think I slightly overbaked). It’s nutty and buttery and I wanted to eat it with a spoon.

For the recipe and to see how the other Baked Sunday Mornings bakers fared, head over to Baked Sunday Mornings.

  1. Ah, yes… that incredibly delicious glaze!! It is definitely one of the things that makes this Bundt cake special!

  2. Beautiful, Sheri! I’ll have to make this one up – but the shortcake was wonderful, too.

  3. Nothing like a Bundt cake – I agree! Looks wonderful!

  4. I loved the glaze too. Think I could have eaten it on everything and anything. I really liked this cake the day it was made, but the next day it seemed dry. (wondering if I over baked it)

  5. After reading your post and few others, I’m wondering if the baking time is off? Mine was totally done after an hour, I thought I might have overbaked it a bit too. I still loved it though – the glaze is amazing!

  6. I agree that the baking time was too long. Except I checked mine at 50 minutes, and while it mostly looked done, there was a crater of uncooked batter in the middle. I baked for another 15 minutes, checking every few minutes, until the crater was cooked. But by then, the rest of the cake was overdone.

  7. I over-baked mine a tad too. Nevertheless, this cake was delicious!
