Lemon Poppy Seed Cake substitute the orange zest for lemon zest and use lemon juice in the syrup instead of orange juice

Works really well with cream cheese icing instead of syrup

The left over fresh fruit can be used as decoration for the cakes

Works well as cupcakes, reduce cooking time to approximately 30 minutes for 12 large cupcakes

Fodmap variation use gf flour, lf milk and nuttelex instead of butter the normal cake is very moist so it comes out beautufully with GF flour
