Lemon Poppy Seed Cake (vegan)
This recipe was printed long ago in the newsletter of the
Ocean Beach (San Diego) People's Food Co-op. I made it a short time thereafter, and I don't remember it but I must have
enjoyed it since I posted it on Usenet shortly thereafter, and someone else must have enjoyed it, since they made a web page out of it which I found on Yahoo while searching for my (long lost) self, and that's how it ended up here today.
Ahem ... since I don't eat dairy products, I frosted it with a
mixture of 1/2 pound tofu blended in a blender with 1/4 cup margarine
and maple syrup, vanilla and lemon juice to taste. By the way, I
think it would be better with slightly fewer poppyseeds...
Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients. Fold gently together.
Pour into greased and floured 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Bake in preheated
350° F oven for 1/2 hour or until toothpick comes clean.
This is a light, not too sweet lemon cake with a lovely snappy crunch
from the poppyseeds. Makes a nice tea cake as is, or frost with cream
cheese/honey icing for a richer experience.
(I didn't write that last part. This came from a newsletter, remember?)
