poppyseed madness

This cake is a bit of a weird one, I admit. It has poppy seeds in a crazy amount. And I love it.
It’s a good idea to give the poppy seeds a good smell and maybe a taste test just to make sure that the natural oils in them haven’t gone rancid. Rancid poppy seeds can turn any cake or muffin into a strange thing smelling like paint. Don’t go there!

There will also be a lot of eggs broken while making this one. It’s all worth it though for the delicious result.
And how original!

You will need:

125g or half a cup melted unsalted butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup poppy seeds
7 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat the oven to 200C/395F and grease or line a loaf pan.
With an electric mixer beat whites with sugar until they are forming peaks and stiff. You can try it by hand but in my opinion it just takes too much time.
Add all the other ingredients and beat just to blend, don’t keep going once blended.
Pour into the bread pan and bake for 45 minutes or until the cocktail stick comes out clean.
