Cherry Poppy Seed Crumble cake (David Lebovitz) (cake de cerezas y semillas de amapola)

I love make loaf cakes like this one because they are simple to put together and always taste better the next day :)

In this cake I love the simple crunchy texture of the poppy seeds .
This recipe is really nice like a teatime  treat  or even served for breakfast.
We are in spring but still I don't see  fresh cherries but all the time I use frozen cherries and they are amazing .

Source : David Lebovitz (from a recipe of Sweeter off the Vine book) fruits desserts for every season,


1/4 cup floour (35 g)
2 tablespoons old fashioned oats
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons butter salted or unsalted room temperature


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (210 g)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup  granulated sugar
grated zest of 2 large lemons
1/2 cup neutral vegetable oil (125 ml)
3 large eggs room temperature
1 cup plain whole milk yogurt (225 ml)
2 tablespoons freshly lemon juice
1 1/2 cups pitted cherries  fresh or frozen


Preheat oven to 180°C  (350°F).Butter a loaf pan (9 inch- 23 cm), dust with flour and tap out any excess.

Streusel Make the strausel mixing 1/4 cup flour, oats, brown sugar, poppy seeds, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl.Add the butter and use your fingers to break the butter into small pieces, until the streusel is in small bits. Set aside.

To make the cake

Whisk the flour,baking powder,poppy seeds, and salt together  in a bowl.
In a large bowl rub the sugar and lemon zest together very well with yours fingers, encouraging the lemon oil to saturate the sugar. 
Whisk in the oil, eggs, yogurt and lemon juice. Add the flour mixture all at once, stirring with a rubber spatula until it's almost completely incorporated.
 Fold in half of the cherries and scrape the batter into the prepared pan.

Dot the remaining cherries over the top and sprinkle with streusel. Bake the cake until golden brown on top and it feels set in the cneter, about 45  to 50 minutes.
(you can insert a toothpick in the center to check for doneness as well. When it come out clean of crumbs the cake is done.)
Let the cake cool in a wire rack. 
When cool run a knife along the outside of the cake to help it release from the pan and tip the cake out the pan.

The cake will keep for up to three days at rom temperature well drapped. and ytou can freeze up two months.
Frozen cherries are available at Whole Foods in the U.S.
