 Poppy seed cake


Baking pan: 34 x 24 cm


220g poppy seeds

150g sugar

2 eggs

220g flour

½ sachet of baking powder

a drop of vanilla extract

juice from half a lemon

100ml milk

120g butter (melted)


We have always used poppy seeds in our family. Marcel doesn’t understand it, so this year, for Christmas, I didn’t bake a poppy seed cozonac.

...but I did bake a poppy seed cake using a very old family recipe (I couldn’t let my love for poppy go).


Baking it is very easy!

At first, Marcel helped me grind the poppy seeds. J Here are the next steps—

Mix the sugar with the egg yolks; add the flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, juice from half a lemon, milk, melted butter, and poppy seeds.

Beat the egg whites until stiff and slowly mix the foam into the initial batter.

The ingredients for the poppy seed cake

Pour the mix into the baking pan lined with baking parchment and bake for 23-25 minutes in the preheated oven, at 180°C.

Before baking the poppy seed cake


When the cake cools, cut it into square slices. Mine were fluffy, flavourful, and... oozing of childhood.

Hope you enjoy them, too! Merry Christmas! ♥
