Seed cakes!

Did three at a time, this time.

Two of them are for the baronial meeting / Christmas party tomorrow; I made the third because the smell will drive my wife mad if it’s in the air there when she gets home this afternoon and there are no cakes for her to sample.  If I have a self-criticism, it’s that I may have skimped a little on the poppy seeds*.  Of course, the batter tasted fine, so maybe I’m worrying about nothing.

*Recipe here.  Only, I went back to using poppy seeds and orange zest.  Don’t get me wrong: it’s delicious with caraway and lemon, but I just like it better this way.

    Those look good!

    Did a difference in ingredients cause the darker color of the cake on the left? Or was that a vagary of the oven?

      The darker cake was on a different shelf, so I suspect that that’s the reason. I was really really careful about keeping track of everything, though, so they’re all properly cooked.

      Is it a different color, or is it just more in shadow than the other 2? Without knowing the exact light situation, it is hard to tell color differences between objects completely in shadow and objects completely illuminated.
