A wonderful fusion of Italy and Austria

Let me share my new favorite recipe for this summer with you – a juicy, fresh lemon poppy seed cake!

Last year I took a trip to the Amalfi coast in the beautiful country of Italy and found inspiration for this lemon poppy seed bundt cake. There I went hiking through the lush lemon gardens. Then coming back home and seeing all the wonderful poppy seed flowers in full bloom on the summer fields, I put two and two together to one genius combination of flavors!

I know there are already a lot of delicious lemon poppy seed cake recipes out there, but what makes this bundt cake so special and unique is the use of white chocolate as a substitute for oil in the cake.  with white chocolate. Instead of using oil, white chocolate is stirred into the dough instead. This gives the cake a wonderfully soft and juicy consistency with a very special aroma.

Summer poppy seeds combined with the pleasant tang and freshness of the lemon makes this cake a hit for every summer party. I already made this bundt cake for various parties and the pieces were gone within a matter of minutes every time.
