Light, fluffy, fruity heaven – you will want to eat the whole loaf – even if in order to do so you have to hide half for later!!! ;)

I have been promising myself for a while now that I will have a go at a lemon poppy seed loaf. Ever since, in fact, I was looking through the spice rack in my local supermarket and found a jar of poppy seeds!!!

I love poppy seeds – both the taste and that pop you get in the mouth when you eat them. They also happen to be one of the few foods that I enjoy in both a sweet and savoury recipe!

I should probably mention at the point that of all the ways I love to eat poppy seeds - lemon and poppy seeds together are my absolute favourite.

And these cakes sure didn’t disappoint! The lemon buttercream frosting is delectable but in all honestly the cake is undeniable perfection with or without the topping! Every mouthful is just heaven.

If you do add the frosting – it’s definitely one to try – I would recommend storing these in the fridge to get the maximum life from them. Without the topping they will fine on the counter in an airtight container for at least 10 days!!! :D
