This is a very old but good recipe. The reference to "wax" paper dates it.

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

1/3-cup (2 1/2 ounces) poppy seeds
1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest
1 cup whole, 2 percent or 1 percent milk
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract

How to Make Mouth-watering lemon poppyseed loaf cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a bowl, combine the poppy seeds, lemon zest, and milk. Set aside to soak for at least 1 hour or refrigerated overnight.
  • 2Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 6-cup loaf pan with parchment or wax paper.
  • 3In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment (or using a hand mixer), whip the eggs and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • 4In a separate bowl, sift the dry ingredients together.
  • 5With the mixer running, drizzle the oil, vanilla extract, and almond extract into the egg mixture. With the mixer still running, add alternating batches of dry ingredients and poppy seed-milk mixture to the egg mixture. The batter will be somewhat thin.
  • 6Pour into the prepared pan.
    Bake 1 to 1 1/4 hours, until the center is raised and cracked and the whole cake is firm and dry on the top.
  • 7Do not under-bake or the cake will fall. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and continue cooling before serving.
