When I was browsing Lilian’s old posts in her food blog some time ago, I was attracted by her Lemon Poppy Seeds Cake. She baked it more than 2 years ago.
I am a poppy seed lover, coz I really like to see those tiny little black dots. That’s why I also like Kiwi! Some more, sourly lemon is also what we (kids and I) like.
I finally had the chance to back this cake… But I made a mistake. The cake mixture is so little, I should have used a smaller cake tin, but before the mixture done I already lined my 9″ cake tin, so I lazy to change. It resulted a very thin cake.
At first, I thought it was a failure. I took a very small slice to try. WOW! Surprisingly, it was just so, so, so, so good! I love the sourly taste of lemon, and the texture of poppy seeds, plus the aroma of the ground almond!
Unlike her kids, my kids like sourly stuff. After tasting it and finished within seconds, I added more lemon syrup. Hahaha! True enough, man don’t really like sourly things. Those tasted this cake were: Ian, Isabel, Hubby, Myself, MIL, FIL, SIL, my female colleagues.
All said very nice, except HUBBY and FIL! Theyh said it was too sourly. Apart from Ian, the rest are all females. Hahahahaha! Anyhow, Ian loved it so much. He alone ate 3 pieces! He loves the poppy seeds and he also like the sour lemon syrup.
If you want to bake it, hop over to Lilian’s page for the recipe. Cheers!
