This is a very simple recipe of poppy seed cake. It's moist and sweet.
100gr poppy seeds
1 teaspoon of vanila extract, or 1 tablespoon vanila sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. In a mixing bowl mix the milk with the sugar, untill the sugar is disolved. Add the oil and the vanila. Mix the flour with the baking powder and add it into the wet ingredients. Mix well and add the poppy seeds. Mix until combined.
Pour the mixture in greased baking pan and bake for 30-40 minutes (until it's brownish at the sides and a toothpick comes clear from the center). Don't over bake it, or the cake will dry out.
You can glaze it with molten chocolate, jam or sift some powder sugar on top.
If you don't like milk, or if you're fasting (Great Lent - Orthodox) for Easter you can substitute it with water, just again don't over bake it, cause it tends to dry out little more when it's with water.
