Poppy Seed Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Icing

This cake came about when our German au pair told me how much she missed her mum’s poppy seed cake – so we decided to make it in Ireland. After a little bit of experimenting, we came up with this recipe. It is incredibly rich – one small slice generally suffices – and it is absolutely divine! This cake will keep for a few days but it can also be frozen un-iced.

Moscato, Sparkling Whites and Rose are the best wines to pair with Poppy Seed Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Icing.
