A cafe IÂ frequent sometimes serves possibly the best pie/cake thing on the planet. It’s entirely full of poppy-seeds, not too sweet, not too savory, it has a cake/pie type crust and for the life of me I cannot work out what it is in it. I have scoured Google to not too much avail and the closest looking recipe I have come across is this one:
Recipe for German Poppy Seed Cake
I intend to experiment slightly to get something close to what I really like, the addition of the baked sour-cream layer sounds pretty darn good as well. Shall share success or failure when I get around to it and once I work out what farina is and what I can substitute (Semolina?).
Stick with Semolina… I’d say it’s a safe and good bet! Save me a slice!
please let me know when you crack this little gem and thanx for sharing, I am going to give it a go.
I’ve since made this cake. It was fantastic and different but not the same as the one I was trying to replicate… the search continues.

Bec: where is this cafe? I might have to sample this cake and maybe work out how to make it??
I love cake. Mmmmm, cake 🙂
