1.The recipe calls for 1/4 cup black poppy seeds. If you find this amount rather too excessive, reduce it to about 2 tbsp. Please note that you should feel the presence of the poppy seeds for the authentic taste.
2. I used Betty Crocker brand cake mix and Jell-O brand pudding mix.
3. Use yellow or white cake mix.
4. Use Vegetable oil only as it doesn't contain strong flavor.
