Lemon poppy seed cakes

10 May

look how moist it is...

I love poppy seeds in desserts. It has a unique taste, so while reading one of my favourite food blogs Cannelle et Vanille i found this recipe and wanted to give it a try…  

The result was great… even though i used whole wheat flour, i was afraid that the cakes won’t be fluffy enough but the texture was satisfying…

I was also afraid that the olive oil would give a strong taste to the cakes but no, they were just perfect. They had a strong lemony taste…. that we’re not used to in desserts but after couple of days eating it you find it delicious.

Next time i’ll make this recipe i’ll try to put orange juice instead of lemon, i think it also suits alot the poppy seeds.

Check out the pictures and give the recipe a try. Thank you Aran. Thank you Cannelle et Vanille.

Folding the batter was a full pleasure. It was so fluffy, light & airy. I knew the recipe was a complete success. I was so happy.

looks & tastes yummiii...

    I totally agree with what you wrote about the lemon cakes, they were fluffy, juicy and got better in taste day after day.

    I’m looking forward to trying them with orange juice, whenever you want mimi I’ll be ready to help and gain the opportunity in taking a bite into these small, yummy rich in orange juice cakes…or maybe a small drop or two.
