Lemon Poppy Seed Blondies
( You can see just how easy & fun this recipe is to make over on @thekodiakden Instagram page, where I do an Instagram Takeover to show you!)
Alright guys so listen up & listen good.... I AM IN LOVE. No joke. These blondies are freakin BOMB. I love lemon so much during the spring & summer time, and I have already made these 3 times in 2 weeks. They are the perfect sweet treat, packed with whole grain from our friends at Kodiak Cakes & truly perfect!
So who is the star of the show YET AGAIN you might ask?
Kodiak Cakes saves me time & time again. Their Almond Poppy Seed Power Cakes mix, makes this recipe so simple, and requiring only 7 ingredients! As you guys know one thing I am always weary about when I get pre made mixes is what additives they have in it to preserve freshness. Did they use bleached flour? Did they use enriched flour? The list goes on & on. However with Kodiak Cakes I have ZERO worry, they use 100% whole grain-- their motto stands with everything HGHF stands for. They sure make easy, delicious & fluffy buttermilk flapjacks possible BUT you can use their power cake mixes as flour substitutes... so low & behold that is exactly what we did!! Cannot wait for you to try (( Use: Alaina15 at check out to receive 15% off your order!) Link here to order!
Get ready to have the biggest hit all summer long! Your family will be loving these & I highly recommend bringing this to any friend/family member etc. during this social distancing time. Leave on the front porch & they will forever be in love with you ;) But I know they already are!

Well don't you worry guys I have a whole posted dedicated to my recipe creations with Kodiak Cakes & Kodiak Den. This post features all the recipes that have been featured on the Kodiak Den takeovers & cannot wait for you to try them!
1 1/4 cup Almond Poppyseed Power cakes flour
1 cup cane sugar ( 1/4 cup for crust, 3/4 cup for lemon filling)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 stick unsalted butter
Pinch of salt
*Preheat oven to 350
* grease a 10 x 8 baking dish
1: In food processor add 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar & 1 stick of unsalted butter cut into 10 slices. Then process until it starts to form a ball of dough in the food processor— it should start coming together after about 2 minutes
2: Then in the greased baking dish add in the dough, press down firmly until the base layer is covering the bottom of the dish evenly. Then place in oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
3: While the base layer is cooking. Zest the 2 lemons & then chop the zest cup, set aside in small bowl. Then juice the 2 lemons ( about 1/3 cup lemon juice).
4: In medium bowl add in lemon juice, 3 eggs, vanilla extract, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour, lemon zest & pinch of salt. Whisk until fully incorporated. You don’t want any of the eggs to not be well mixed, because we don’t
want an eggy mixture to rise to the top. Then let sit for 5 minutes.
5: Once base layer is done, place on stove top. Then give your lemon filling another whisk & then pour on top of base layer. Then cook in oven at 350 degrees for another 20 minutes.
6: At minute 20 the top will start to look golden brown, bubbly with lemon filling & sugar having crystalized at the top & filling in the middle.
Let cool for 10 minutes, cut & serve! Dust powdered sugar on top if desired! (( our stores have been out or I would have on mine!
