This coffee cake has limitless options. Almond, and lemon are just a few that come to mind! This recipe makes two large Bundt pan cakes. It can easily be cut into half. Or why not make two and freeze one for later.

4-1/2 cups sugar
3 cups canola oil
3 cups milk
6-1/2 cups flour
1 TB baking powder
1 TB salt
3 TB poppy seeds
1TB almond or lemon extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pam two Bundt cake pans.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar, oil and milk.

  4. Beat the dry ingredients into the egg mixture.
  5. Stir in poppy seeds and almond extract.
