Polish Poppy Seed Cake

Later this afternoon I plan to make one of our family’s favourite cakes – Polish Poppy Seed Cake. Here’s our recipe should you want to try making it yourself. This recipe can equally be used to make muffins or cupcakes.

Ingredients needed for Polish Poppy Seed Cake.

200 grams butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
200 grams golden caster sugar
200 grams self-raising flour
3 lemons, zested
3 eggs
2 tbsp poppy seeds
150g natural yoghurt


- Heat oven to 170 / 180 centigrade. Grease and line the base of a deep cake tin
- Add butter and sugar to a bowl and mix until fluffy. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and mix again. Spoon al the ingredients into the tin and smooth over the top. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Leave in the tin for 10 minutes, then remove, and leave to cool on a wire rack.

Enjoy with a cup or two of Lipton black tea!

The poppy seeds we use are from our own garden. The eggs from our chickens. The lemons and other ingredients from a nearby Tesco store!
