– 1 ½ C of granulated sugar – ½ C of vegetable oil – Juice & zest of 2 small lemons – ¼ C of unsweetened applesauce – 2 tsp of vanilla – 2 C of water – 3 C of all-purpose flour – 2 tsp of baking soda – 1 tsp of salt – ⅓ C of poppy seeds – 1 C of powdered sugar – 4 to 5 tsp of fresh lemon juice
Pour the batter into the pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until the edges are golden and begin to pull away from the pan. Take a toothpick, insert it into the middle of the cake and make sure it comes out clean. If it doesn’t bake in 5 minute increments until it does.
Allow the cake to cool completely (or at least 15 minutes if you just can't wait!) before drizzling with glaze. Enjoy!
