Lemon poppy seed cake with birch and yoghurt cream – Recipe for sponge lemon cake with birch, sugar border and yoghurt cream. This lemon cake is super spongy, juicy and full of great flavour. The cake batter consists of, among other things of marzipan, Greek yogurt, blue birches, plenty of grated lemon peel and butter. The most delicious lemon cake, which is baked in a loaf tin, brushed with lemon syrup, rolled in sugar and cut into slices. The yogurt cream is the perfect cream to serve with this cake. The cream consists of whipped cream, vanilla sugar, lemon zest and Greek yogurt.

I now have many different recipes for lemon cakes, try e.g. this lemon cake with birch and frosting, which is simply stirred together in a bowl.  I also have a recipe for lemon cake ala the one you can buy at Starbucks, with lemon glaze on it. Enjoy!
