Delicious lemon poppy seed cake
Ingredients
  • dry ingredients:
  • 200 g of flour
  • 1 Tsp of baking powder
  • ½ Tsp of salt
  • 200 g of sugar
  • 2 Tbsp of lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp of poppy seeds
  • wet ingredients:
  • 125 g of low fat yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • for the syrup:
  • 80 g of sugar
  • 4 Tbsp of lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Turn on the oven 356°F/180°C.
  2. In a big bowl, mix the dry ingredients.
  3. In another bowl, beat the eggs lightly and mix all the other wet ingredients.
  4. Cover a 20x10cm (8x3in) pan with parchment paper.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones' bowl and mix just until well combined (a few lumps are ok).
  6. Bake for 50 minutes.
  7. In the meanwhile put the sugar and lemon juice needed for the syrup into a small pan and let it boil until becomes a little dense, becoming a light syrup.
  8. When the cake is done, lift it from the pan using the parchment paper borders and put it on a rack to cool, yet with the paper.
  9. Using a skewer make holes in the cake.
  10. Pour the syrup spreading it on the top of the cake - part of it will penetrate into the holes you've just created.
  11. Buon appetito!
