Lemon-poppy seed cake

I have located this recipe on lemon-poppy seed cake in the magazine "Isabellas" (issue 01/2017), and I found the use of poppy seeds quiet interesting for a Danish cake recipe ! For me the use of poppy seeds are much more common in German cakes, while we more often use poppy seeds in bread rolls in Denmark.

I have made no modification to the cake recipe. The taste in this cake of lemon is great, so I can only recommend you to try it in your own kitchen.

Lemon-poppy seed cake: - 1 cake

  • 175 butter - soft
  • 200 g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 50 g almond flour or 50 g almond churned into flour size
  • 50 g poppy seeds
  • pinch of salt
  • 1½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • 1 organic lemon - zest and 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 100 g icing sugar
  1. Heat up the oven to 190'C.
  2. Whip the butter and sugar into a white foam structure using a stand alone mixer.
  3. Add 1 egg by the time into the butter-sugar mass, while the whipping is on-going.
  4. Add in the remaining dry ingredients incl the lemon zest.
  5. Whip until the cake mass is homogeneous.
  6. Cover a bread form (12x22 cm) with baking paper or drizzle the form with butter.
  7. Fill the cake dough into the form.
