lemon, cardamom and poppy seed twists


Do the twist.

When it comes to crowd-pleasing desserts that aren’t too rich or heavy, you can’t go past a lemon and poppy seed combo. Whether it’s a cake, a muffin or a doughnut, you know it’s going to taste good when zesty lemon, crunchy poppy seeds and sugar are involved.

In saying that, lemon and poppy seed doesn’t exactly lend itself to the cooler months. Who wants to chow down on a light and bright treat when there are plenty of desserts that’ll warm you up from the inside? Enter: cardamom. The cosy, aromatic spice brings warmth to any recipe – and just so happens to taste bloomin’ amazing when paired with lemon and poppy seeds! Don’t believe us? Give this recipe for lemon, cardamom and poppy seed twists a whirl and see (or taste) for yourself. It's the work of Kristie from the Sweet & Simple Kitchen, and it's a darn good'un.
