Great Groceries: Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake

Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake

3 Tbsp. milk

3 large eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 cups cake flour

1 cup sugar, divided

3/4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/2 Tbsp. loosely packed grated lemon zest

2 1/2 Tbsp. poppy seeds

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350º.

Grease large loaf pan. Put waxed paper in the bottom of the pan and grease it, too. Mix milk, eggs and vanilla in a small bowl. In a large bowl, mix together flour, 2/3 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, lemon zest and poppy seeds on low speed for 30 seconds. Add butter and 1/2 the egg mixture. Mix and add the rest of the egg mixture in 2 parts. Pour batter into the loaf pan and bake 55 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

For the syrup, put 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup lemon juice in a saucepan and cook until sugar dissolves. When pound cake is done, poke holes over the top of the cake with a thin skewer. Brush half the lemon syrup over the top of the pound cake.

After 10 minutes, remove cake from pan, spray cooling rack with cooking spray and invert cake. Poke holes all over the bottom of the cake. Brush remaining syrup over the bottom and sides of the pound cake. Cool completely and do not serve for 24 hours.
