With orange and lemon juice in the glaze and orange and lemon zest in the batter, this poppy-seed-flecked cake doubles up on citrus flavor. Serve it with a simple bar of high-quality dark chocolate, which will complement its sweet-tart flavor.

    This cake had a nice flavour but with three cups of flour and two cups of sugar there was too much batter for a single nine inch cake pan. I baked it in a nine inch springform and that worked well. My oven temperature is accurate but the cake was overdone after one hour so check after fifty minutes.
