Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

Nothing says, "SPRING" more than this vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Cake. The classic duo of lemon and poppy seeds meet again to form this delectable and rich cake. This sweet treat is made with only 11 ingredients, is oil-free, and naturally sweetened with dates! Um, yes please.

As winter begins to fade, we begin to bring in more fresh, light recipes. We move from a place of heavier, grounding meals into those that are more light. Notice if you eat more smoothies instead of oats during the warmer season because I sure do! The most basic reasoning behind this, is because out bodies are trying to stay cool! We can talk about that later, but for now let's just talk about cake! I felt inspired to make a lemon poppy seed cake mainly due to my body saying, "Where's the sweets at Liz?" So naturally, it was time to soak the dates and get creating this tasty recipe.

This light & refreshing Lemon Poppy Seed Cake is frosted with a tangy sweet lemon coconut frosting layered in between a tender, moist lemony-cake.

This Lemon Poppy Seed Cake Recipe is:

  • Not Overwhelmingly Sweet

  • Lemony

  • Oil-Free

  • Light & Fluffy

  • Naturally Sweetened with Dates

This rich cake has a hint of lemon that makes it perfect for the summer and spring months!
