This is a light chocolate cake that is studded with poppy seeds, and is the type of cake that's perfect to have with an afternoon cuppa. You can use chocolate chips or simply chopped plain chocolate.
You can use two 23x13cm loaf tins instead of the tube cake tin, if desired. Simply adjust baking time as needed.
This is a very good cake!! Nice and moist. - 17 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made muffins with this recipe. It made 23 large muffins that were light and full of poppy seed (great recipe if you love poppy seeds). We didn't have buttermilk on hand so I substituted fat free evaporated milk. Will make these again. - 06 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
