Almond Poppy Seed + Lemon Loaf

Happy Spring? Yes,  the question mark is needed since we had snow on Long Island today and its April second! I'd say about six inches total, but we were happy to see the sun appear and melt some of it away. We started on some yard work this week and were getting the itch to start doing some planting, but luckily we held out for now. Snow days are always the best days to test out a new recipe and typically we like to try our hands at baking on these chilly days. We just received some of Kodiak Cake's new Almond Poppy Seed Power Cakes Flapjack + Waffle mix. We decided to use this delicious mix for some baking and the results turned out absolutely delicious. Here's everything you will need: 

3 cups of Kodiak Mix 
1/2 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1 tsp of baking powder 
3 eggs, beaten 
4 tbsp of unsalted butter, softened 
1/3 cup of brown sugar 
3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk 
3 tbsp of lemon zest 
1/8 cup of lemon juice 

Ingredients (glaze)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp of water 
1 tbsp of lemon zest

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add in milk, eggs, yogurt + butter. Whisk together until all is blended (Kodiak Mix is fully incorporated). Spray your loaf pan with nonstick spray and pour in batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes until fully cooked through and golden brown on top. Let cool for 20 minutes. In the mean time, whisk together your water, sugar and lemon zest to create your glaze. Your glaze should thicken. If needed, add additional sugar to create the right consistency. Brush onto your loaf or lightly drizzle when serving slices. 

This loaf is the perfect cake to bring to a brunch or dinner party. It pairs perfectly with sliced fruit, toasted and buttered or with jam. We love warming up a slice for breakfast, especially since its packed with protein and will keep you full throughout the day. Let us know what your favorite Kodiak Cakes flavor is.

Air Fryer Wings + Bacon Brussel Sprouts
