Poppy seed cake is my favorite of all cakes. You can just ask any of my family members and they all will tell you the same. Also all of them used to hide it from me. Can you believe it? Now I am big enough ;) to make my own poppy seed cake and I don’t mind to spend some time in the kitchen to do that. Before you try it on your own you must know that it can be tricky! But the worst that can happen is that the cake will crack at the top, however it still be delicious, so don’t worry! I tried to put instructions as clear as possible, but if you have questions just comment or shoot me an email! I will be glad to reply. I can’t tell you enough how good this cake is. Moist and sweet with the unique poppy seed taste. Just melting in your mouth… och.. too bad I just ate last slice this morning.

    I saw this pic on Tastespotting and had to check it out — my grandparents are Hungarian, so I recognize a good beijgli when I see it! Your story made me laugh — my brother recently traveled to Budapest on business and brought me a beijgli from one of our favorite bakeries there. A few days later, I found my two-year-old hiding under the kitchen table with the box, and nothing but crumbs and a huge smile! I’ve never tried to make one myself, but I may just give your recipe a whirl! Thanks for the inspiration — Lovely blog.

      Thank you for such lovely comment! I needed something positive today. It is funny – I am still a little bit like your two-year-old, I don’t like sharing the last piece of the cake ;) Hope you’ll try the recipe and will love the result as much as I do.
