lemon poppy seed pound cake


instructions require food processor--you might not have the same results without. make with poppy seeds or without. juice and zest requires 2-3 lemons. you can also use this same recipe to make orange pound cake, substituting orange zest and orange juice (and leaving out the poppy seeds). from fine cooking, spring 2002.
