Gluten-free poppy seed cake with lemon glaze

Author: Aušra


For those, who still have left poppy seeds from Christmas. For those, who is seeking gluten-free cake. For those, who adore poppy seeds and lemon combination (it’s really worth trying!). This cake is really delicious, despite it contains only a few ingredients. I used 17cm diameter form, but original suggested to use 19cm diameter form. You should decide what size you will choose by yourself 🙂

Purpurinis limonadas

Purple lemonade

I was always interested in how children make lemonade that I saw in the old american movies. So I was very eager to try to make it by myself. And we still have some berries in our garden, so I made this lemonade. The result was very refreshing. Just it was too strong for us, so when we watered-down in half-and-half we got very light dring with a mild taste of lemon and black currants.

Lemon chicken

Chicken is quite often prepared for lunch or dinner at our house, so it’s not surprise that I try to find new recipes with it. Till now I haven’t tried chicken with lemon. But this recipe is with mild lemon taste and is not very sour, so all my family enjoy it.

Puff pastry cookies with poppyseed

They are addictive, I could see this in my office – big plate was empty in an hour, and there was only flour girls, and everything is because you can not go near cookies and don’t take one 🙂

Cake Lemon Butterfly

I chose this cake because it was with lemon, so had to be refreshing, and it was in butterfly shape – it had to fit for my daughter’s birthday, because she love every creature that is alive 🙂 And I was wright! The cake was very good! I baked only half portion, but it was really enough for 6-8 people. Only next time I would bake only 2/3 of sponge, because we like when cake is almost all of cream and sponge is a very thin layer. But you should decide by yourself.

Poppy seed zucchini muffins

If you still have zucchini, you should bake these muffins. They are moist as all baking with zucchini, but poppy seed gives some new flavour.
