Poppy Seed Chiffon Cake

... lemon glaze on a poppy seed chiffon cake ...
Bonnie said that one of the sweetest joys of her childhood was eating poppy seed chiffon cake.

Further, she said that she wanted to learn to make it.

I went to an old recipe book to pull out a recipe from the past on this one.

In Bonnie's kitchen, she gathered the material to make the cake and went to work on the recipe.

I told her that she should make 3 or 4 cakes like this, just to be sure she has the method right.  We did cull the internet for similar recipes and we learned one new trick.  Take the eggs out of the fridge at least 1/2 hour before using them to get the best result when whipping the egg whites.
