My childhood memory consists of this cake + loads of cream cheese icing. Today I am sharing my wholefood version - so you can share this with your little ones & family and friends. This recipe sends me straight back to my wonderful Nene who is my mothers best friend & who I grew up with as a second mother. She made this most weekends & the smell & taste takes me right back to living in PNG and eating her Lemon & Poppy seed cake on a Saturday afternoon. This recipe is such a classic, beautiful hints of lemon & the textured crunch of poppy seeds to satisfy anyone! These muffins make a great afternoon snack and can be frozen for an easy go-to grab out the door!
