When life gives you lemons make a lemon poppy seed cake.
Most of the times when I have lemons I made some margarita cocktail but this time I choosed to bake a lemon poppy seed cake. I didn’t regret it since this tender and moist cake full of lemon flavor filled with crunchy little black poppy seeds was the perfect company for my Sunday coffee.
The mixture for this cake does not contain butter, I used vegetable oil instead, while there is no milk too, I used plain low-fat Greek yogurt. The result? Outstanding! A cake rising high in the pan and when sliced it was moist and full of the bright lemon flavor that satisfied my lemon craving.
At the end, even though I am not a big fan of glazing a cake (that’s why I prefer to glaze the cake slices and not the whole cake) I added a sweet lemon glaze which was the most perfect glazing for the lemon poppy seed cake.
Before start making this lemon poppy seed cake have in mind that you have to leave your ingredients to come to room temperature. Moreover, you will need a 35cm*10cm cake pan. A different shape of pan would be ok but be sure that is the same in capacity.
