There is a picture of Lemon Poppy Seed Cake; NO RECIPE ! So I searched and searched and no recipe! There was a comment that it had, Jicama , nuts, agave, lemon, poppy seeds. WOW! Me and my non-adventurous nature:::::no measurements:I do not make it! And then I looked again and it said "Jicama" and I thought at first it was just a play on ingredients because they did not want to post the recipe? Some people just dont! So I ground up the jicama and apple -- it was o.k. then I added agave, lemon and lemon zest and it was delicious so I added the flex and at this time if it was like "gross" I would have thrown it away, but to my surprise it was so delicious so I added the almonds not wanting to waste 2 c of precious nuts! AND SO EVOLVED THIS DELICIOUS CAKE ! Joz

This is exactly how mine looked!
But this one just had me dreaming every day! TODAY; no plans whatsoever to make it, had leftover Jicama. If it did not come out I'd loose 2 cup of almonds ! SO HERE IT IS; WOW WOW WOW; So Lemony and the frosting so creamy !
1 1/2 c grated Jicama *** if it's too 'juicy' squeeze the liquid out by hands*
1 Granny Smith Apple pealed & ground
2 c. Almonds soaked/dehydrated ground fine
4 T golden flax ground fine
1/4 c agave
1 tsp vanilla
lemon juice and zest of 1 lemon
1/2 c poppy seeds.
Mix all Ingredients and form in any shape you want; I made a 5 1/2 inch round dish lined with saran wrap.
Then top the first layer with Frosting
Then top the 2nd layer/round. Flip out and place on a plate and frost the whole cake (top & sides)
****THIS IS SO LIKE 'Costco' white frosting!
1 c OMEGA NUTRITION coconut oil (it does not smell/taste coconuty) The one I used is just like Crisco !
Beat/Whip this with beaters! from my SAD baking days!
Add 1/4 c agave
Juice of 1/2 lemon IF YOU LIKE MORE LEMON DO juice of 1 and or zest. whip again.
Spread quickly as it starts to melt a little.
Sprinkle Poppy Seeds on sides or designs if you make a different shape.
Top with Lemon zest curls or slices.
Place in Ref for an hour or so. Serve at room temperature!
You can also juice the jicama using the blank plate to make sure Jicama is a dry pulp. Then add the grated apple and add 2 T of the jicama juice back after adding almond meal and ground flax if the batter feels too dry.
