    This is an easy recipe for two lovely lemon and poppy seed loaves. The yoghurt helps to keep these cakes deliciously moist! Enjoy as is with a cuppa, warm with butter. Or you can top these with a lovely lemon drizzle icing.

    These poppyseed muffins are a real treat for breakfast, or great with tea. They're also dairy free. A great, easy muffin recipe!

    This cake came about from an inspired moment when craving almonds. It's absolutely divine and has become an often requested recipe. One warning however, whenever I cook this cake it seems to disappear very quickly so make sure you get a slice. I've said the recipe serves 8 but it serves 6-8 depending on how much cake one likes at any sitting!

    This cake is very light, tender and tasty. It's fun to make and fun to eat. Two layers of soured cream poppy seed cake, with a luscious lemon filling. Ice with a buttercream icing if desired.

    This a is traditional Jewish classic dessert especially at your Purim celebration. It is customary to have food containing poppy seeds, fruits and nuts as this is what Esther ate whilst she was kept prisoner in the palace – they were some of the few ingredients that she could obtain that were kosher! This can be parev.

    A really great way to use up over-ripe bananas. The loaf is light and fluffy with crunchy poppy seeds for contrast. Keeps for days. But as it's so delicious that might be a bit of a challenge! Perfect addition to a packed lunch.

    A Czech specialty that is delicious and easy to make. If desired, you can ice or glaze these and top with flaked almonds or other nuts. You can use apricot filling instead of the poppyseed filling. Also, if you don't have the round tins, you can bake the rings on regular baking trays (just be sure to place the seams of the rings are well sealed and placed downward on the trays).
