This is the second recipe in my tribute to the Great British Bake Off! I am so excited about it. When I made the kouign amann a couple of weeks ago, it was such a blast. The lemon poppy seed drizzle cake that I made here was featured in the latest season airing on PBS right now. The minute I saw it I had to try and recreate it because I absolutely love lemon with poppy seeds. Luckily I found the recipe online here so that I could make it! It had a lot of little components to make but it was completely simple and doable.
I made a simple icing of lemon juice and powdered sugar and poured it all over the top. It dripped right down the sides gloriously. Then I topped the cake with more poppy seeds, toasted slivered almonds and the pretty lemon bows. It looked just like the cake on the show!! I was so happy! I hope you all enjoy my latest tribute to one of my favorite all time shows. xoxo
