Lemon lime poppy seed cake

Lemon poppy seed cake

We love the tartnes and flavour of sitrus, specially lime and lemon, so this cake is a favorite of ours.

I made 12 cup cakes and one pund cake out of this recipe

Preheat oven to 180 C

250 g sugar
250 g butter
4 eggs
300 g flour
3 tablespoons poppy seeds
2 teaspoons baking powder
Zest and juice of 1 lemon and 2 limes

Beat butter and sugar white with the sitrus zest, then add the eggs on by one untill all well incorporated in the butter and sugar mixture,

Sift the flour with the baking powder and mix this in to the butter mixture on low speed adding the poppy seeds and the sitrus juice at the same time, as soon as everything  mixt together stop mixing, you do not want to over mix the batter.

Divide the mixture between cup cake 12 cup cake cups and a rectangular cake tin lined with baking paper.

The cup cakes I baked for about 15 minutes

The pound cake I baked for about 40 minutes
The glaze is just a mixture of lemon and lime juice and powdered sugar, poured on top when the cake has cooled and sprinkle somelime zest on top.
Enjoy the cake with a nice cup of coffee.
