    Very tasty, moist, buttery, with lemon and vanilla flavor. Poppy seeds contribute to a crunchy texture.
    I’ve done it several times but never covered it.
    For my taste I reduced sugar and butter, I used 275 g of sugar [1 + 1/3 cup] (instead of 350 g) and 200 g of butter (instead of 220 g). I used the zest of 2 medium lemons or a large one.

    I tried three lemon poppy recipes to find the right balance of lightness. I didnt want a heavy Heavy cake but also wanted it to work well with my new Jubilee bunt pan. This was the best out of all of them! Will be making again. Only comment the glaze isnt nearly enough, I doubled that.

    I made this as a dairy free version, using a vanilla soy yoghurt. Turned out tasting fantastic, with a very fine, soft, and light texture. Definitely going on the favs list:)

    Used the Crown Bundt pan, Took off 1/2 cup less sugar and added blueberries. It only wasn’t perfect because the outside of the cake was too dark and not so yellow like the photo. Although it tasted delicious.

    We made that cake yesterday and all of our guests and ourselves loved it. Since we’re Germans, and thus generally don’t eat as sweet as Americans, we used a 1/4 cup less sugar. Furthermore we used natural yogurt instead of vanilla yoghurt and increased the amount of vanilla extract by half a tea spoon.
