Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt

4yrs ago today, i started my blog Vishual Foodie. It started with the simple intention of collating traditional as well as good tried and tested recipes. It took a lot of pushing by my friends to get it started and now I am celebrating 4 yrs of it.

This blog has been curated with a lot of love and trials. Am glad to see so many using recipes from my blog not only to cook for their loved ones but also features on their business menu. Recently i have just been tied so unable to try too many dishes but i hope to be more regular

Coming back to this gorgeous Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt, i tasted it for the first time at the opening of first PDCA studio and then tasted it a few times at Priyankas home or studio. Absolutely love it but poppy seeds are hard to come by. Finally managed to get some from Australia and had reserved it for a special day. Thank you Priyanka Arora Nayak for sharing this delicious recipe. Its a tangy, delicious cake with an awesome crunch of the seeds.
