"realsimpledotcom is on target for me again w/a recipe that combines poppy seeds w/a lime option & will definitely be a Siggi-pleaser. So I've saved the recipe here for my Siggi-pleasing future. ENJOY! -- Edited to Add that I'm pretty sure this has to be my shortest recipe intro ever! :-)"

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter & flour a 12-cup Bundt pan, tapping out the excess flour. In a food processor, pulse together the flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder & salt. Add the butter & pulse to form pebble-sized pieces.

Step 2

Whisk together the yogurt, eggs & lemon zest. Add to the flour mixture & pulse until just combined (30 seconds). Spoon the batter into the prepared pan & bake until the cake is light golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (30-35 min).

Step 3

Meanwhile, make the syrup. Combine the sugar & 3 tbsp water in a sml pan. Cook over low heat until the sugar has dissolved & is just warm (do not boil). Stir in the lemon (or lime) juice.

Step 4

Cool the cake in the pan on a rack for at least 20 min. Then turn out onto a serving platter & cool until just warm to the touch. Prick all over w/a toothpick & slowly drizzle the syrup over the cake. Cut into wedge slices & serve.

Step 5

NOTE FROM ME: It surprised me to see that the recipe required a 12 cup bundt pan, but yielded just 6-8 servings. The 2 stats seemed like a mismatch to me, so I opted to show as 8 servings.

Tips & Variations

  • Food Processor plus a 12-Cup Bundt Pan



Delicious and I love food processor cakes -- so easy! This cake was so good. We served it with some vanilla ice cream but it would also be great solo or maybe with berries. Thanks for sharing!
