The clumsy dance of the colours and patterns of life

Witness the clumsy dance of the colours and patterns of life, the sometimes-harmonic, sometimes-cacophonic combination of the silence and the noise all around, and the heroes and the helpless within.
Welcome to my little corner of The Mighty Interwebs, where it is not likely you will find anything profound (or even very interesting), but where you will find all manner of random. Life is a kaleidoscope of the weird and the wonderful, the awesome and the awful, the blessings and the bizarre, and the collision between them is what you just might stumble upon here if you stick around. Grab your favorite drink and come hang out with me if you dare.

Poppy Seed Cake with Orange Glaze

Bake time: 1 hour

3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1 1/8 cups vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1/4 cup poppy seeds
1 1/2 cups milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup orange juice
3/4 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients well. Pour into greased pan(s) - either 2 loaf pans or a 9"x13" cake pan. Bake 1 hour. Glaze while hot.

Boil ingredients together. Pour over cake after using handle of wooden spoon, fork, toothpick, etc to poke holes in cake.

This is also really good with lemon juice instead of orange.
