Making lemon poppy seed cake:

Step 1: prepare the margarine.

We take margarine from the refrigerator and transfer it to a separate plate so that it melts to room temperature on its own. Our ingredient cannot be melted on fire or in the microwave.

Step 2: prepare the flour.

Sift the flour through a sieve into a separate bowl to remove lumps and enrich it with oxygen from the air. In order to make our pastries tasty, you need to take fine flour and premium wheat flour.

Step 3: prepare the eggs.

We wash the eggs under running water, and then use a knife to break the eggshell, and pour the egg white and yolk into a free bowl.

Step 4: prepare the flour mixture.

In a bowl with sifted flour using a teaspoon, add salt, soda, baking powder for dough, vanilla sugar and poppy seeds. Using a tablespoon or a hand whisk, mix all the ingredients well until a homogeneous bulk mixture. Attention: extinguish soda with vinegar or lemon juice is not necessary. A poppy for the preparation of our baking does not need to be steamed with boiling water or ground.

Step 5: prepare the liquid mixture.

Sugar is poured into a bowl with soft margarine warmed to room temperature using a measuring cup, and using a tablespoon, carefully rub the two ingredients until a homogeneous mass is formed. After that, we transfer egg white and yolk from a container with a tablespoon into a bowl with our ingredients. Beat the whole mass well with a mixer until a homogeneous liquid mixture is formed.

Step 6: prepare the lemon zest.

We rinse the lemon under running water and after - pour it with boiling water, since after heat treatment the bitterness is removed from the peel of the citrus ingredient. Then, using a paper towel, wipe the lemon dry with excess liquid. Using a fine grater, rub the zest of the lemon in a separate plate, and put the flesh of the lemon aside. Attention: the remaining citrus can be used for other culinary purposes or simply add small pieces to tea. The ingredient without the peel will not deteriorate. The only thing: it is better to store it in the refrigerator.

Step 7: prepare the dough.

We take a container with the flour mixture and with the help of a tablespoon we gradually add the egg-oil mixture. At the same time, do not forget to mix everything very carefully with improvised equipment so that lumps do not form in the flour mixture. This procedure can be facilitated by using a mixer by setting it at medium speed. But then it will need to be periodically turned off, and at this time add a new portion of the egg-oil ingredient to the flour mixture. After all the components mix well and a homogeneous mass forms, with the help of a tablespoon add sour cream to the mass and again, using the whisk of the electric appliance, mix our components well. It remains to add to the resulting homogeneous mass with the help of a tablespoon of the bowl the mashed lemon peel and again mix everything thoroughly. It turns out liquid, with a saturated yellow color and with poppy grains, the dough, in its consistency resembling thick sour cream.

Step 8: prepare a lemon pie with poppy seeds.

We take a baking dish and, using a tablespoon, pour the resulting batter from the container into the pan. Using the same tableware, evenly spread the dough ingredient over the entire surface so that the dough is baked evenly. Preheat oven to temperature 180 ° C and with the help of kitchen gloves we put the form with the dough into the oven. Bake a lemon pie with poppy seeds for 50 minutes in the set temperature mode. To check the readiness of baking, just pierce it with a toothpick or dry wooden stick. If it stays dry, then our cake is ready and you can get it out of the oven. We turn off the oven and with the help of tacks we get the form with our ready-made dish. When the lemon pie with poppy seeds has cooled to room temperature, cover the baking dish with a wide dish. Then we turn the form upside down and thus remove the pie from it, placing it in this dish. Evenly sprinkle our finished baking through a small sieve with powdered sugar. Our cake can also be decorated with fresh or canned raspberries and strawberries, or with fresh lemon slices.

Step 9: serve the lemon pie with poppy seeds.

Serve lemon pie with poppy seeds to the dessert table. You can enjoy our pastries with tea, compote or juice. And if you put lemon jam on the table to our amazingly fragrant and delicious lemon pie, this will only improve the taste of our dish. Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - To prepare the dough, you can use butter instead of margarine.

- - Grating the zest will be easier from a thick lemon.

- - On top of powdered sugar, you can also sprinkle almond chips or walnuts, which first need to be fried and chopped.

- - Instead of icing sugar, you can pour the surface of the cake with the prepared glaze. To do this, combine sour cream, sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice and mix well in one container. When the cake is still hot, fill it with this prepared mixture. It will also be very tasty.
