Saturday sweet: lemon poppy seed cake
There is nothing better than having a coffee in the afternoons on Saturday afternoon, when you're done with your shopping, getting your flat refurbished and waiting for dear friends. For the occasion, there was finally the combination poppy-lemon with me. That's what I want to do forever, because I like to eat the English "Poppy Seed Lemon Muffins".
Last week I also got a nice tin for I discovered mini cakes and just had to have that.
So I started mixing ingredients for a dough and could have eaten it pure.
I'm a big fan of Lemon peel and also like poppy terribly. And just this combination of citrus and poppy seed is really irresistible and absolutely perfect!
