Easter Sunday is just around the corner. Rise and shine with this beautiful bundt! It is so delicious. Our taste testers (a.k.a. husband and five brothers) claim this is the best lemon poppy seed cake they’ve ever had. One brother even said it was better then the Costco version! See for yourself, it is moist beyond moist. I made a YouTube video  with my girl, Claire Thomas and I baking this beautiful bundt. Check it out here. Enjoy!

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 tablespoons poppy seeds

Generously gease bundt cake pan with coconut oil. Combine almond flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, syrup, lemon zest and lemon juice. Add flour mixture, then stir in poppy seeds.

      It is pretty surprising, isn’t it? This moist and delicious cake has fooled quite a few people! My co-founder, Claire Thomas of The Kitchy Kitchen, takes all my blog photos. Isn’t she talented? Let me know if you bake up this tasty bundt! xo

    This looks lovely, I’m definitely going to give it a try. Should I be using the thicker tinned coconut milk, or the thinner carton type?

    I love this and the Kitchy Kitchen site and you are right, Claire’s photos are wonderful.

      Hi Sarah! I would use 100% coconut milk if it available in your area. Nature Value
      is a brand I like to use. You can also use homemade coconut or almond milk! We have a recipe for homemade coconut milk on the blog actually ;). Enjoy. So happy you are loving the blog and our recipes. Happy Easter!

        Thanks! We don’t have that brand in the UK, but we do have a lovely organic brand called Biona that looks comparable. I’ll also have to give making it a go. Thank again.

    Do I use unsweetend almond milk or vanilla almond milk? Does it have to be homemade or cartons from the market are ok?
