Lemon Poppy Seed Snack Cake

This snack cake is soooo good!! It is a All-Bran recipe and it is loaded with whole grains and fiber and is low in fat, but you can't tell! Seriouly, I wouldn't lie! I made it after dinner and everyone loved it, the kids all asked for seconds :) It tastes like a sweet muffin and it's the perfect snack.


1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 cup ALL-BRAN bran buds or original cereal
1/4 cup fat free milk
2 egg whites
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup fat free lemon yogurt
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
1/2 cup powdered sugar
juice from lemon

1.Stir together flour, sugar, baking soda and powder, salt and poppy seeds. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl combine ALL-BRAN cereal, milk, egg whites, oil, lemon peel and yogurt. Slice your lemon in half and squeeze 1 half of your lemon in there too :) Save the other half. Let your mixture set for 5 minutes to soften the cereal. After 5 minutes add flour mixture and stir just until combined.
3. Spread evenly in an 8x8 or 9x9 pan that is coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes (Mine was done after about 21 minutes so start checking after 20). Check with a toothpick to make sure center is done.
4. Combine powdered sugar with the juice from the remaining half of lemon and stir until smooth. Add a bit of milk if you need to thin it out. Pour and spread over warm cake. Cut and Eat!!!
