Top Review by andrea in South of

This cake was great! One of the best lemon poppyseed cakes I have ever had! I added the juice of one lemon to the wet ingredients, and at the end i sprinkled the cake with icing sugar to make it just a bit sweeter.... Terrific! Thanks very much!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F, line the bottom of a round 25-cm (10-inch) cake pan with parchment paper and grease the sides.
  2. In a large mixing-bowl, gently combine the yogurt, eggs, sugar, vanilla, oil.
  3. In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, lemon zest, and poppy seed.
  4. Add the flour mixture into the yogurt mixture, and blend together -- don't overwork the dough.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean.
  6. Let stand for ten minutes, and transfer onto a rack to cool.
