Moist Lemon Poppy Seed Cake has a little zing of sweet lemon freshness. It looks like a bread but tastes like a cake.
Poppy seed cake is just so beautiful. The lemony yellow color speckled with tiny little poppy seeds in intriguing. The only thing that you probably need to buy for this recipe is a jar of poppy seeds and possibly a lemon.
We live in the dessert and are swimming in citrus this time of year. I happily have an orange a day and there are lemons galore. Unfortunately, some extremely cold days got our grapefruit trees so we are hoping they come back. If not, have no fear, we will replant.
You will love yourself and your family will give you sparkling smiles if you make this cake. So … go for it. Nothing is more satisfying than turning out something special with so little effort.
