As a lot of us, you probably watch these cooking shows and when it is time to do it all by yourself, we burn the cooking pan, smother our living rooms, you get it, it is a pain in the...yep that part.
So why don't we just cook some simple but really tasty stuff?
In an attempt of helping you out, we called our own cooking Wonderwoman: Olivia.
And today she treats us with her poppy/lemon cake recipe.
170gr of caster sugar
Yellow lemon zest
100gr of liquid cream
190gr of wheat flour
1TS of baking powder
1 dash of salt flower
70g de beurre fondu
jus de 1 citron
2CS de graines de pavot
Syrup: 1 lemon juice + 1TS of sugar
Icing : lemon juice + 100gr of icing sugar
Pre-heat the oven
Mix sugar and lemon zest, then add the eggs. Then keep mixing, adding the cream.
Add the wheat and the baking powder (that you've already sieved), then add the salt flower and keep mixing.
Add the melted butter, and mix really well before adding the lemon juice and the poppy seeds.
Put the whole mixture in the oven for about 35min checking the cooking with a knife. Once out of the oven, use the syrup on the cake and let it cool a bit. Take it out of the mold.
Once cold, use the icing on the top of the cake.
This is a simple cake, yet so tasty and original.
You will want to have one more slice, trust us!
