Is 'Tudor' born to be a Bake Off theme? Or was it just the BBC sound team trying to prove their eerie Potter-style plucking soundtrack was worth the money?

This recipe is for delicious, zesty lemon and poppy seed flavoured cakes, which is one of my Dream Tea recipes. They only take around 30 minutes to make and also happen to be gluten free! I like to decorate mine with a sprinkling of crystallised lemon zest but why not try out some other summer themed decorations like flowers or let the children have fun decorating with sprinkles and sweets!

Since beginning my new Food Optimising way of eating via Slimming World, I am always looking for ways to reduce my use of processed ingredients and for foods with lower syn values.
