    3. Add the orange paste to the dry flour. Add oil. Mix well.
    4. Slowly, add some milk. Mix well. Check for consistency. If too thick, add some more milk. The cake mix should be of thick dough consistency. Fold in the poppy seeds.
    5. Line the cake tin. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 45 mins to an hour. Each oven has its own baking time, so read the oven instructions.
