Poppyseed and Caraway Cake

We celebrated National Cake Day with…… a cake!  When you have a good sponge mixture, you can open the cupboards and find lots of goodies to add to it.  Caraway seeds can be a bit divisive but we love them, so we put them in, but if they’re not a family favourite then leave them out or replace them with something else.

  • 150g unsalted butter
