I do not know you but really I love a cup of tea or coffe with a piece of cake but ... homemade. .
I am impressed in the supermarkets as people buy cakes or others for Tea but really never is the same.
Well, I made this cake last night (baking from scracht) and today I finish it.
Although sometimes I am very tired I like it (if I can cook at night and the next day finish it.

This help the cakes helps moist, gives them a lovely shiny gloss and make them more tastier.
100 ml water
100 grams granulated sugar

Bake in the center of the oven for 25 minutes, then turn the cake and bake for about 15 minutes more until firm and springy to the touch: push down on the middle with your finger and make sure is ready.
Brush the sugar syrup all over the cake while is still hot then allow to cool in the tin about 30 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack and cooling entirely.
Combine the confectioners sugar and light corn syrup in a small bowl . Mix in the lemon juice a couple drops at a time until you have a thick icing. Check the consistency if you need add a little more sugar to thicken more.
Spoon over the top of the cake and allow it to drip naturally down the sides. Sprinkle with a few poppy seeds, then leave the icing to set before cutting.
