Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.
Poppy seed and lemon cake : Photo of step #1
Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).

Lay a sheet of cooking parchment on a baking sheet and spread out 25 g poppy seeds on it.

Toast in the oven for just 5 minutes.

Leave to cool.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Put 180 g caster sugar and 180 g butter into a mixer bowl.

Start the mixer and beat until evenly mixed.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

Add 200 g egg, 200 g flour, 10 g baking powder, 5 g fine (or table) salt and the zest of 1 lemon.

Continue beating until evenly mixed.

Stage 4 - 1 min.

Finish by adding the cold toasted poppy seeds. Beat for 1 further minute to mix in thoroughly.

Stage 5 - 1 hour

Transfer the mixture into a non-stick or well-buttered (or both) tin or mould.

It is not essential, but I recommend putting the tin in the fridge for an hour or more to firm up the mixture; this helps it rise better as it cooks.

Stage 6 - 40 min.

Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C) and bake the cake for about 40 minutes.

Stage 7

Turn the cake out gently and leave to cool on a wire rack before serving.
Remarks
Do take care not to over-toast the poppy seeds. They are very small, so 5 minutes is plenty long enough.

For a more intense lemon flavour, add a little more lemon juice.
Keeping
A few days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
