Poppy Seed Cake

One day, my dear friend Mee Lan wrote and asked me "Can tumpang a place in Minty's Kitchen? I can refer to it without taking out my trusty old recipe book then".  

I am very glad indeed to do that;  so here it is - Mee Lan's favourite poppy seed cake's recipe:


1/3 cup poppy seeds ( soak in 3/4 cup milk for an hour)
185 g butter
vanilla essence
3 eggs
1 cup sugar (reduced to 200g)
2 cups self-raising flour  (310g)

Beat in medium speed for 3 mins. Fold in self raising flour.

Bake in 180 for 1 hour.

Keeping time :- 2 days.


  1. The cake looks good.
    The milk is discarded or put in?
    Beat eggs together with butter for 3 mins?
    I have some poppy seeds that I am thinking of finishing up

  2. Wendy, the milk and poppy seeds were put in together. Personally I prefer to make this cake using the creaming method and then fold in the flour alternately with milk (with poppy seeds).
