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.

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.

Passion fruit jellies
Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
