  • 125 g of butter – softened
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 220 g of caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 225 g of plain flour
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of finely grated lemon rind.
  • ¼ cup of Poppy Seeds


  • Line a large loaf tin with baking paper and preheat your oven to 150 degrees.
  • Place the softened butter into your Thermomix bowl and mix 2 minutes on speed 3 until it is pale and creamy.
  • Once the butter is pale and creamy, add the eggs and mix for 10 seconds on speed 3 to combine.
  • Add the remainder of your ingredients and mix for 10 seconds on speed 4 - if your mixture hasn't quite combined, mix for a further 5 seconds on speed 4 or until your mixture is smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into your prepared cake tin and place in the oven to bake for 45 minutes or until the cake is cooked through when tested with a skewer.
  • Carefully remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the tin for 10 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once cool, prepare the cream cheese icing by placing 250g of softened cream cheese and 100g of softened butter into an electric mixer and beating for 3 – 4 minutes until well combined. Add 1 1/4 cups of icing sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix well to combine.
  • Use a spatula or a butter knife to then spread the icing over the cake.
