Freckled cake is cute, full of freckles and flavor that will fill your entire house during baking. You will be especially happy if you like poppy seeds. I love them! Even more than potatoes ;). Remember to cover it after it cooled down, as it can dry out easily. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!
