Buttermilk Poppyseed Lemon Cake
Jadi Lemon Poppyseed Cake nya udah di coba. Ueeeenaaaak!
Aku baru pertama kali coba bikin, resepnya diadaptasi dari berbagai resep nemu di internet, ada yang aku ubah beberapa ingredient nya. Sesuaikan dg apa yg ada di kulkas aja.
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup poppyseeds
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
1 cup salted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs
For the glaze:
5 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
or more if you want your cake moist.
Stir the milk and the vanilla essence together in a small bowl.
Add the poppy seeds. Leave to soak for an hour.
Grease thoroughly your baking tin and line the bottom.
Pre-heat the oven to 375F
First put the butter and sugar into a bowl and cream together using a wooden spoon.
Then add the rest of the ingredients and whisk together with a hand-held electric mixer.
Put into the cake tin and level the batter.
Bake in the middle of the pre-heated oven for 30 minutes.
Remove the lemon poppyseed cake to a wire rack and allow to cool.
While it is cooling, you can make the lemon glaze.
Put the sugar and lemon juice into a pan and heat over a gentle heat until the sugar is fully dissolved.
Make holes in the cake use knife or toothpicks and pour the glaze over the top of the cake so that it soaks down into the cake. Use a pastry brush to help to spread it around evenly.
Seriously this is a good cake, it is crusty in the outside and sponge like in the inside. It is light and perfect for summer.
We had it with ice cream and fresh berries.
Happy baking, good people! Enjoy my so called recipe, you could always alter the ingredients as you wish.
