Oops! What I meant was I only used about 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds rather than the whole teaspoon. Trying to cut the carbs a bit since I was using a frosting.

I LOVED this! I substituted some almond extract for the lemon juice and added about 1/2 teaspoon of poppy seeds. Used a couple tablespoon of cream cheese with a tablespoon of Swerve as a frosting. Almond Poppyseed cake! I'll try it with the lemon juice next time, but I prefer almond to lemon.
