Sansa Stark – Game of Thrones Lemon Cakes




  • 3 Tbs. warm ale
  • 2 1/2 tsp. instant yeast
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter (4 Tbs.)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbs. poppy seeds
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • ~2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Dissolve yeast in warm ale, along with 1Tbs. of the flour mixture.  Your yeast should bubble up after a few minutes, indicating that the yeast is active.

In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and seeds, followed by the lemon zest and juice. Gently add the yeast to this mixture, then begin to fold in the flour and salt.  Use as much flour as is needed to make a smooth, thick batter. Grease your cupcake pan, and fill the cups 2/3 full. Bake in middle of oven at 350° F for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool slightly before turning onto a cake rack.

Finally Dip top of your cakes in lemon curd
