Poppyseed Cake

Updated on January 21, 2018

Poppyseed Cake Lite (With Icing)

Yogurt and a small amount of canola oil fill in for the butter and sour cream, and a simple icing of powdered sugar and orange juice substitutes for a buttercream icing to further reduce fat and calories. Using part whole wheat or barley flour will add some fiber without making the texture too dense. When using a nonfat icing, a sweeter liquid (such as orange juice here instead of lemon juice) will prevent a metallic taste.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached, enriched flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat or barley flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons poppyseed (note: poppyseeds should be kept refrigerated; check that they are not rancid first)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup plain, nonfat yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel ("lemon zest")

Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice (less than the amount from 1/2 small orange)

Method

Preheat oven to 350°F. Sift the first 5 dry ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl. Stir in poppyseeds. In another bowl, beat together eggs until frothy, then beat in sugar, oil and vanilla until smooth; then beat in yogurt and lemon zest. Add dry ingredients and stir until just combined (do not over mix). Distribute batter evenly into a nonstick 10" Bundt type pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes or until top is springy to the touch and a long toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Transfer to a rack to cool 5 minutes in the pan and then out of pan. While it is cooling, prepare the icing: Whisk orange juice into powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Once cake is cool (about 1/2 hour) pour icing over cake while it is still on the cooling rack (make sure a plate is under the rack). Move cake off rack onto another plate and spoon the icing runoff from the first plate over cake. Let the icing set (about 10 minutes) before serving. Store in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic. Best eaten within a day or two.
