Lemon Poppyseed Coffee Cake

Perfect for Entertaining Guests During the Holidays

Lately, we have been having lots of guests visit our home in Vermont. Because my wife and I get up at 4 am, long before most other people even wake up, I wanted to offer our houseguests something quick and easy to enjoy while drinking their coffee. I make this Lemon Poppyseed cake ahead of time and cut it into 4 chunks, freezing each separately. I can pull a piece out the night before and decorate it in the morning so my guests can enjoy what looks and tastes like a freshly made cake.

My earliest attempt at cookery began with the filleting of my sister's goldfish at age 2 and cooking my pet rabbits by age 7. Life has been downhill ever since.
