Lemon Poppy Cake

A few days ago, a friend of mine gave me this little piece of sunshine from her garden. The weather in California is particularly good for citrus trees. There is a lemon tree on every block in San Francisco, and every time I see one, I cannot help thinking of all the delicious things I could make with lemons. This is why I am now sharing this recipe, so that you can all enjoy it as well! Personally, I like to add a couple of tablespoons of poppy seeds to give it a special touch of flavor.
