Grain-Free Lemon Poppy Coffee Cake
Grain-Free Lemon Poppy Coffee Cake – scented with fresh lemon, and filled with delicate poppy seeds, makes this gluten-free coffee cake a winner. Using almond and coconut flour is what makes this cake extra moist with a subtle nut flavour.
I think it’s one of the best and most moist and gluten-free lemony coffee cakes I’ve ever tasted. It’s lovely as is, but a slice topped with lemon scented glaze is a big hit for deliciousness!
What should we know about poppy seeds?
These tiny seeds add a bit of crunch and nuttiness in cooking. But they hold exceptional health benefits. They are packed with antioxidants, are rich in protein and dietary fiber, and are especially rich in oleic and linoleic acids and B complex vitamins.
When the poppy seeds are used in baking it is important to soak them first, this softens the outer layer making them easier to digest.
This means, just because they are tiny, it doesn’t mean they don’t hold health promoting properties, because they do and plenty.
To summarize this grain-free lemon poppy coffee cake.
It is not your traditional dense coffee cake with sugar and butter, this version has just the right balance of healthy oils, nuts, seeds and fresh lemon to dazzle the taste buds.
This gluten-free cake is fiber rich, free of refined sugars and about as healthy-ish as a sweet snack can get. Another outrageously delicious gluten-free recipe with poppy seeds, is the grain-free poppy seed apple muffin
