Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake

  • Ingredients:
  • 3 C. flour
  • 2 C. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. Poppy Seeds
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 lb. butter
  • 1 C. Buttermilk or (make ur own) sour milk (see notes *)
  • 1/2 tsp. B-soda
  • 1/2 tsp. B-powder
  • 4 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Notes *  to make sour milk: use 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, added to one cup of room temp milk.  You must put the lemon juice in the dish/cup FIRST followed by the milk. if you do this part first, you can see the milk start to curdle, this is what you want.  It might take any where to 20 min to an hour. So let it sit.


Combine all ingredients in a bowl & beat for 1 ~ 2 min. Pour mixture into a greased & floured Bundt pan. Bake @ 325 degrees for 55 ~ 65 min or till done using a toothpick coming out clean.

Also: This recipe can be put into loaf pans, but the bake time may be adjusted.

A glazed Icing is Optional!
