Preheat your oven to 160°C (140°C for fan assisted ovens) / Gas Mark 3.

Mix the eggs, oil, water, poppy seeds and cake mix gently together and whisk (by hand or electric mixer) for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy.

Pour the mixture evenly into two greased loaf tins.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 35-40 minutes or until a rounded knife inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean, then cool on a cooling rack.

Mix the glaze mix and water together until blended. Drizzle over the cakes with flair and finish with a sprinkle of lemon zest. Then say hello to happiness – your sunny lemon cake is ready to eat…Simply divine!
