Poppy seed cake

This was the inspiration for this year based on this polish recipe which I could partially understand as translated by google. Thank you.

Poppy seed cake


  • 200g poppy seeds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 medium sweet apples
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 Tbsp semolina
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • vanilla extract


  • melt butter in the microwave and mix with sugar and 1 egg
  • add poppy seeds and the apples grated.
  • beat the other eggs and add them to the mixture
  • add the semolina, baking powder and vanilla extract
  • bake in the oven at 160C for 50min – 1h. I actually checked quite often in the last minutes. I used a round baking pan with diameter of 25 cm.
  • enjoy and Happy New Year!

  2. hey, it looks great.

    question: do you grind the poppy seeds?

    thank you.

  3. Actually I did not grind them even if the original recipe was using them grinded but I found to be a quite difficult task. I only grind them a bit to let the flavour get out but not to powder.
