And with this post, I have created Sunday Supper just for you........

Poppy Seed Cake

1/3 cup poppy seeds
1 cup milk
4 egg whites
3/4 cup shortening
1 & 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups ap flour
2 tsp baking powder

1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups confectioner's or as we call it "powdered" sugar

In a small bowl, soak poppy seeds in milk for 30 minutes. Place egg whites in a large mixing bowl; let stand at room temp for 30 minutes.

In another large mixing bowl, cream the shortening, sugar, and vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder; add to creamed mixture alternately with poppy seed mixture. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; flod into batter.

Pour into a greased 13x9 in baking dish. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

For frosting, in a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in cofectioner's sugar. Spread over cake. Store in refrigerator. 12-15 servings.

*This is the perfect dessert to go with the chicken drumsticks! We also have mashed potatoes and asparagus or rice and asparagus. Either way is very good! Also, when we are not in the mood for potatoes or rice we sometimes have mashed cauliflower with butter. Yum Yum!

Have a great Sunday!!!!

Love and Prayers,
