Perfect Lemon Poppyseed Cake

INGREDIENTSFor the Lemon Poppy Seed Cake:

  • 3 cups cake flour spooned and leveled (336g)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons organic lemon zest about 3–4 lemons
  • 8 ounces unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons poppy seeds

For the Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 12 ounces cream cheese block style
  • 8 ounces unsalted butter slightly softened but still cold
  • 4 ounces salted butter slightly softened but still cold
  • 4–6 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon organic lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

For the Assembly:

  • Lemon slices
  • Poppy Seeds
  • Edible flowers (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Make the Lemon Poppy Seed Cake:
  2. Preheat oven to 350. Butter and lightly flour three 8? round pans. Line with parchment paper circles.
  3. Whisk together 3 cups cake flour baking powder and salt. Add lemon zest and whisk again. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl combine milk and lemon juice. Stir to combine and set aside for milk to curdle. This is similar to making homemade buttermilk.
  5. In the bowl of a stand mixer beat butter and sugar on medium-high using the paddle attachment. Beat until pale and fluffy about 3 minutes. Scrape down bowl.
  6. With the mixer on low add eggs one at a time. Mix well after each egg.
  7. Add vanilla extract. Mix to combine.
  8. Add the flour mixture in three batches alternating with the milk beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Do not over mix.
  9. Add poppy seeds and mix to combine. Stop the mixer and scrape down the bowl and the mixer blade. Batter will be thick and fluffy.
  10. Divide batter evenly between the three 8? round pans. Smooth tops with rubber spatula or knife to evenly distribute batter in the pan.
  11. Bake for 25-27 minutes until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
  12. Let cool in pans for 10 to 15 minutes then remove to wire rack to finish cooling.

Make the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  1. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix the butter and cream cheese until smooth.
  2. Add vanilla lemon zest and juice and mix until combined.
  3. Gradually add confectioners sugar adjusting amount until desired sweetness is reached. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Whip on medium until smooth and slightly fluffy. Overmixing will result in a thinner frosting because the butter and cream cheese will be too warm and soft.

Assemble the Cake:

  1. Place one layer of cake onto serving plate or cake stand and top with about one cup of lemon cream cheese frosting. Repeat with second cake layer more frosting and then last layer of cake. Crumb coat and frost cake with remaining frosting.
  2. If desired create soft swirls in the frosting by lightly placing the tip of an offset spatula against the frosting while spinning the turntable. Your spatula will naturally move up the side of the cake leaving a imprinted swirl.
  3. Decorate with lemon slices a sprinkle of poppy seeds and edible flowers if desired.
  4. Store in refrigerator. Serve at room temperature.
