Bolo de limão e sementes de papoila // Lemon and poppy seed cake

(scroll down for english)

show-me-pretty-lemon-and-poppy-seeds-cakeO meu fim-de-semana acabou por ser bem mais preenchido do que previa no final da semana passada mas, mesmo assim, não deixei de fazer o prometido bolo de limão e sementes de papoila. Confesso-vos que cheguei a duvidar que teria alguma coisa para vos mostrar, não apenas porque a consistência da massa me pareceu bastante estranha mas também porque tenho uma grande tendência para desastres culinários no que respeita a bolos, doces e pão (pão então nem vos falo!). Não sendo especialmente apreciadora de doces (sou mais pelos salgados) acabo por praticar muito pouco e quero acreditar que o meu menor jeito para a doçaria seja consequência disto. Mas o facto é este: contra todas as minhas expectativas, este correu muito bem e ficou francamente delicioso. E o melhor é que também tenho uma receita de tiramisú de bolo de limão, para aproveitar as sobras (acreditem que vai sobrar de certeza)!

By the end of last week I thought I was about to have one of those very calm weekends when you stay at home most of the time, enjoying the fact that you can do whatever you want or don’t do anything at all. But unexpected plans came out and I ended up spending most of the weekend outside, walking around Lisbon with the boyfriend, eating great food, and spending time and making plans with a dear friend. But I still found the time needed to bake the lemon and poppy seeds cake I talked you about last week.
I have to admit that, while I was doing it, I had serious doubts about having something to show you, not only because the consistency of the cake batter was very unusual (maybe because of the seeds?) but also because I’m not a very good baker (even though I am pretty good at cooking). The fact is that I’m not a big fan of all things sweet, and since I don’t usually eat them, that means I also don’t practice baking them. But against all odds, everything went well and the cake is really delicious. If you want to give it a try, here’s the recipe. Hope you like it!
