Lemon poppyseed layer cake, the perfect spring cake for any occasion.
Lemon poppyseed layer cake. Everyone knows that I love a sweet/tart combination in my bakes. I’m not overly fond of rich desserts. So, this lemon poppyseed layer cake is perfect for satisfying that sweet tooth, it’s light, sweet and just the right amount of tart. The lemon zest and juice help to lift the flavour of the cake and give it a rich lemon taste. The poppyseeds, although not adding any flavour give a fantastic crunch and texture. Poppyseeds are fantastic in bakes because they give a little excitement to the texture and they look wonderful when lovingly sprinkled on top of your bakes.
