This is my first posting so I hope that it works out. This tea cake is delicious! I got this recipe from Style at Home magazine. It is a recipe from David Hammonds, executive chef at The Empress Hotel in Victoria, B.C., Canada.

In bowl, stir together flour, poppy seeds, zest, baking powder and salt until well combined; set aside. In separtate bowl, stir together lemon juice and sour cream until smooth; set aside.

In another bowl, using electric mixer, cream butter until light in colour.

Add granulated and icing sugars; beat for 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. With mixer running, add eggs, one at a time, scraping down sides of bowl after each addition.

Adding flour and lemon juice mixtures alternately to egg mixture in two additions each, mix batter until smooth; scrape into greased 9-inch (1.5L) round cake pan. Bake in 350 degree F (or 180 degrees C) oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden and tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Let cool in pan.

Sprinkle with icing sugar.

Makes 12 to 15 servings.
