Polish Poppy Seed Cake

Polish Poppy Seed Cake
  • Poppy Seed Filling:
  • 3 1/2 cups poppy seeds
  • boiling water to cover
  • 5 eggs, divided
  • 9 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • Dough:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup margarine
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 apple - peeled, cored, and grated
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • Icing:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup boiling water


  1. Place poppy seeds in a small pot, cover with boiling water and set aside for 24 hours.
  2. Line a colander with a cheesecloth and spoon in the poppy seeds. Allow to drain for several hours. Once drained, transfer to a food processor and process until fine.
  3. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup margarine, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 egg, and baking powder in a large bowl and knead into a smooth dough.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a deep quarter sheet pan (9x13-inches) and line with parchment paper.
  5. Roll out dough on a slightly floured surface and place in the prepared sheet pan.
  6. Combine egg yolks, 9 tablespoons margarine, and 1 cup sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in drained poppy seeds gradually. Add apples, honey, breadcrumbs, walnuts, and raisins and mix well.
  7. Beat egg whites in a glass, metal, or ceramic bowl until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks. Fold egg whites into poppy seed mixture; spread over base in sheet pan.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour until cake is set; transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  9. Mix enough boiling water with confectioner's sugar to form a smooth icing. Spread generously over cooled cake.
