Poppy Seed Yoghurt Cake

poppy seed yoghurt cake

People in Germany love to use poppy seed as cake ingredients, some that I know are called  Mohnkuchen, Mohnstollen and Mohntorte. They also made bread with poppy seeds (Mohnbrot). Cake that I’ve made was poppy seed cake (Mohnkuchen) with yoghurt. It’s simple and delicious, I ate this poppy seed yoghurt cake for breakfast with a cup of coffee. Enjoy it!
