This lemon poppy seed einkorn cake is deliciously healthy, and quick to make, and perfect for a spring brunch. The flavours of lemon and poppy seeds complement each other beautifully in this loaf cake, but chia seeds and coconut were added for extra goodness and flavour. If desired, prepare a lemon syrup and drizzle over the warm cake.

Those blueberries are just calling my name. This looks like a delicious Spring loaf.

Sam Hoffer / My Carolina Kitchen 15/3/16 12:02

What an exotic name. Now I'm craving blueberries...

All That I'm Eating 15/3/16 12:36

Love this recipe, another great one for using einkorn! Bet it's good with the poppy seeds.

Unknown 15/3/16 13:38

Love the colour from the poppy seeds! Looking at the ingredients, I bet this loaf is moist and flavourful. Looks beautiful, Angie!

Nava K 15/3/16 14:46

The lemony scent I simply love in this cake. Such a beauty as well.

Monica 15/3/16 14:53

I definitely love the addition of the plump juicy blueberries on top of this loaf! Love a loaf like this, ready for breakfast, snacking, or dessert!

Claudia 15/3/16 14:56

Now I am wishing my blueberry bush was bearing fruit! I have never cooked with Stevia- healthy? Love the use of coconut. I do love tea breads - just the right amount of sweet and not cloying. Delicious!

eatgood4life.blogspot.com 15/3/16 15:53

This would be something I would take on the go. Love the fact that you use einkorn even though I have never baked with it. I need to someday!

Nancy Chan 15/3/16 17:22

I am so tempted by such a delicious looking cake!

Anonymous 15/3/16 18:16

If one does not have Einkorn flour, either in berries to grind or already ground, how much flour would this recipe use, please?
So...what is the weight of the berries after they are ground?
Sorry, would they still weigh the same? Hm...maybe they would.
Sorry if my question is stupid. Guess I'll experiment with something
I can grind to find the answer.

grace 15/3/16 18:42

i finally caved and bought some chia seeds...something very similar to this might be my first use!

Juliana 15/3/16 19:52

Angie, you always come up with interesting recipe...this cake is amazing, packed with good nutritious ingredients...
I yet have to try baking with Einkorn flour...thanks for the inspiration!
Have a wonderful week :)

Unknown 15/3/16 20:11

Alida 15/3/16 20:13

Wow! This cake has such a fantastic texture and colour! I am entrigued by einkorn as you seem to bake a lot with it. I will look for it in my local health shops next time I go out.

Angie's Recipes 15/3/16 20:16

@Caterina BSpelt will be a nice alternative. And yes, the weight will stay the same after the berries are ground.

Tricia Buice 15/3/16 20:19

I'm always looking for ways to incorporate coconut flour. This is a lovely cake and the blueberries are a great addition. The lemon glaze sounds wonderful too!

Pam 15/3/16 20:58

So many good and yummy ingredients going on here Angie. Love the dark color of it and I say blueberries are a MUST!

Anne@ASaladForAllSeasons 17/3/16 01:50

Ohhhhh beautiful loaf, Angie! I love how the blueberries nestle down deeper into the cake. And I can only imagine it warm out of the oven with a lemon drizzle! Gorgeous photos! : )

Elisabeth 17/3/16 04:59

Angie, I checked out the recipe that you adapted your amazing Chia Poppy Loaf Cake from, and I must say it's more than just a slight change; You've created a totally new and different one, which is incredible, because most of the time it's just a little 'tweek' here and there! Love the poppy seed with the chia seed pairing, and the blueberries just really adds an even more tastier, addition, and presentation!

Elisabeth 17/3/16 05:05

I meant to say most people 'tweek' recipes a little here, and there...did not mean that you do this. Strangely enough, I never even check the original source recipes come from, and this time I was curious! (OK, enough babbling)

Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary 17/3/16 16:18

You bake the most beautiful breads, loaves and cakes, Angie! And you are always so creative with them!! Love this one just as much as the last! Cheers, dear!

Anonymous 17/3/16 17:42

Emma @ Bake Then Eat 17/3/16 21:26

Angie those blueberries look amazing as does the rest of this loaf!

Unknown 17/3/16 22:04

This sounds wonderful Angie. I would definitely keep the blueberries, they make it look so pretty!

Ashley@CookNourishBliss 17/3/16 22:47

Lemon poppy seed is a huge favorite of mine during spring! This cake looks just wonderful!

Liz That Skinny Chick Can Bake 18/3/16 00:13

Lemons, blueberries and all those seeds sounds like heaven to me. I'd love a couple slices for my breakfast!

Catherine 18/3/16 04:36

Your recipe is so timely - my coworker is the first person I've known that uses Einkorn and was looking for recipes. I'll pass your blog along to him. You use it often and your baked goods always look so delicious.

Velva 19/3/16 13:16

Lemon and poppy seeds are a natural combination. Another beautiful and delicious loaf by Angie :-)

This loaf look delicious with the juicy sweet blueberries.

Vicki Bensinger 21/3/16 18:04

Great recipe Angie. I"ve been trying to create a few dishes with chia seeds since they're so good for you. I love blueberries so I'm sure I'd enjoy this. I'll definitely give it a go.

mjskitchen 22/3/16 02:34

My mother used to make a lemon and poppy seed pound cake which was out of this world. This cake reminds me of it in flavor, but certainly not in ingredients. You cake is much healthier and heartier. I can understand why you call it a brunch.

Choclette 25/3/16 10:21

I had my first cake made with ground poppy seeds quite recently and was amazed at what a difference it made as opposed to eating them whole. Your loaf sounds gorgeous.

Unknown 26/3/16 04:02

So gorgeous and creative, would like to have a slice!

Sharon D. 29/3/16 01:51

This is a stunning loaf cake, Angie! Why, oh why, do we live so far away from each other ..

Gina Stanley 29/3/16 05:32

One of my favorite combos lemon and blueberries. Another thing I need to try.

Roz | La Bella Vita Cucina 17/4/16 18:04

What a blueberry studded bread! With lemon and poppy seeds, I can only imagine how wonderful this tastes, Angie!
