Pap's Poppyseed Cake


 

Today is my dad's birthday and he loves Poppyseed cake.  I've never made one before so I thought this would be the perfect time and a nice surprise for when we visit.  This recipe is simple to make and it bakes up beautifully! I hope he enjoys...Happy Birthday Dad :)



Ingredients are as follows:
recipe adapted from Baker

3 C flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 3/4 C sugar
4 eggs
1 1/3 C oil
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (10 oz.) jar of Poppyseed filling (found in the baking aisle)


 Here's a picture of it for ya :)


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a 10 inch tube/bundt pan. 


Mix together the flour, salt, baking soda and sugar; set aside.


In another bowl, beat eggs until light and fluffy.


Stir in the oil, evaporated milk and vanilla.


Slowly stir the wet ingredients into the dry until they're combined.  


Mix in the jar of poppyseed filling.


Pour into prepared pan.


 Bake for 50-60 minutes; until golden brown.


Cool in pan for 10 minutes; remove and allow to continue cooling.


Slice, serve and enjoy!

  2. I've never heard of poppyseed filling. Is it like a paste? I can buy poppyseeds by the bucketload here but sadly no filling. :(

    This cake looks wonderful!

    1. Hi Maureen :) It's kind of like a paste, I put a picture up top so you can see what it looks like.

    2. Maureen..you can also google poppy seed filling recipe and just make the filling on your own. It's so easy.

  3. Oh Yum! I'm sure your Pap will adore you for making his favorite. I make an awesome poppyseed bread (almond extract...orange juice glaze - MMM!) but have never made anything with this filling either. It's gotta be good. I'll buy a can of the filling when I see it again and give this a whirl. Happy Birthday Wishes to your Dad!!

  11. LOVE ALL YOUR RECIPES. THEY ARE EASY TO MAKE AND VERY DELICIOUS. I WAS WONDERING CAN WE USE JUST POPPYSEEDS INSTEAD OF POPPYSEED FILLING? IF YES HOW MUCH? THANKS.

    1. I never have, but I'm sure you can. I wouldn't use more then 1 C though or it may be overpowering :)

    2. My mum made a great poppyseed cake using the seeds. She also used sour cream and almond flavor vanilla extract....it has always been a Christmas favorite in our family. The batter was really stiff and you had to make it with an electric mixer
