Fall in love with a cake, rightly so.

A key point for any recipe that includes poppy is to use fresh poppy seeds that aren’t bitter. We recommend buying poppy seeds in a good spice shop and asking them to grind them on the spot. You can store freshly-ground poppy seeds in the freezer.

Recipe for Poppy Seed Chocolate Cake:

Ingredients:
100 g dark chocolate

2 tablespoons milk

100 g butter

1 tablespoon brandy

6 eggs, separated
1 cup sugar
160 g freshly ground poppy

2 loaf pans or 1 26cm diameter spring pan

Preparation:

  • Break chocolate into pieces and place in a medium saucepan, add the milk, butter, brandy and melt them together while stirring.
  • Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add ¾ cup of sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  • In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with the remaining sugar.
  • Add 4 tablespoons of the chocolate cream and stir.
  • Add the poppy seeds and the remaining chocolate cream to the yolk mixture and stir again.
  • Fold the beaten egg whites into the mixture.
  • Bake in an oven preheated to 180°C, for approximately 25-35 minutes.

The cake should come out like brownies, moist inside and crispy on top.

Excellent accompanied by a tablespoon of whipped cream…
