lemon and poppy seed buns


Orange and poppy seed is a popular flavour combination and go together really well, but I had some lemons that needed using up, so decided to have a go and see if lemon and poppy seed make a good match. They do.

To begin with the unfamiliar combination of textures and flavours is a bit unusual, but it makes you want to go back for more, and by the second bite, confirms they are a match made in heaven.

I made various size buns, to compare the differences. A batch of small buns will come out with a denser and thicker crust, whereas the larger buns and loaves are slightly lighter and softer.

Preparation Time: 2 hours
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 1 loaf or 2 large buns or 12 small buns
