Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Recipe @pinch

This lemon poppy seed cake is sweet and tender. The glaze seeps into the warm cake not only adding lemon flavor but also making it super moist. Perfect for any occasion, this is a must for any lemon lover. First off: YOU WILL NEED A BUNDT PAN :) Now, that's out of the way, here goes! This was my mom's recipe and she passed it on to me through her handwritten cookbook for my new cooking ventures! I normally, just as she does, double the glaze recipe and add more lemon than it calls for. I just LOVE the sweet and sour kick I get in my mouth. This is a decadent, moist, and incredibly flavorful recipe! I do hope you try it. love it and use it again and again! (I can honestly say that this is one of my favorites!)Enjoy! ~Brittany

Ingredients :
  • 3 - eggs
  • 1 1/8 cup(s) oil
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) milk
  • 2 teaspoon(s) almond extract
  • 2 teaspoon(s) butter extract/flavoring
  • 2 1/4 cup(s) sugar
  • 3 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) poppy seeds
  • 1/4 cup(s) lemon juice, fresh
  • 3/4 cup(s) powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon(s) butter extract/flavoring
  • 1 teaspoon(s) almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
Intructions :
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • WET INGREDIENTS: Beat eggs, oil, milk, almond extract, and butter extract/flavoring in one bowl
  • DRY INGREDIENTS: Sift the sugar, flour, salt, baking powder, and poppy seeds into a bowl
  • Into another bowl, add the ingredients together in 3 increments (thirds) mixing between each addition
  • Take a Bundt pan and grease it down really well with cooking spray... really really well. Flour the bundt pan really well. Pour in your batter. Tap the pan on your counter to release any bubbles out of the batter mixture and pop it in a preheated oven
  • Bake for about an hour until the top starts to crack and is golden brown (and looks really tasty!). It might need a few more minutes. You never know, each oven is different!
  • While your beautiful bundt cake is baking, make your glaze. I always double this recipe and add quite a bit more lemon juice than is called for. Just dump everything in a bowl and mix well
  • I always put the pretty part of the cake down. The bottom of it soaks up more glaze and it's MUCH tastier! Once your cake is done, with a HOT cake, take a chopstick and poke holes all over Be generous, show this cake some LOVE! When you think you've poked enough... show it some more love and add a few more!
  • Pour slowly and carefully over your tasty, upside-down, hole-riddled, Bundt cake. Next, have a slice while it's warm (with a glass of milk!), and try to stay out of it! Enjoy!
