raw poppy seed cake?
« on: September 05, 2010, 05:18:48 am »
Has anyone made a raw poppy seed cake? ....or seen a recipe that looks like it might be good?   

I made a conventional one this morning and then set to wondering if there might be a delicious raw version (particularly because I am obsessed with trotting back to the kitchen to eat the one I made this morning).

Thanks Cornish Cream.  Tebasile also suggested this one.  I was a bit stuck on the Jimaca as an ingredient (although I think it grows well in the conditions where we live) and I haven't seen any asian pears in the Stupormarket (Supermarket).

I haven't gone looking this morning but I woke up thinking I might adapt a filling recipe for pastries etc to get a full poppy seed taste, maybe shape them into balls ......I love to dream food.

I made Hungarian poppy seed pastries (Beigli) a couple of weeks ago, from a recipe that Vivacity sent me - the paste in that is cooked, but you'd probably like it - it's delicious.  (The pastry is kind of like a mixture between a strudel and brioche dough, that you roll really thin, spread with paste, and roll up and cook.)  Let me know if you want the recipe.  :)

Hi Containergirl,

I hope you have access to young coco nuts for the frosting  ;). My neighbours liked the result.



I'm posting the recipe as soon I'm done in the kitchen. 85 peaches, lots of plums and apples are waiting for me....

This looks so divine Tebasile.  I'll hunt out some young coconuts.  They are pretty easy to come by here in the tropics.

The fruit sounds divine.  85 peaches mmmmmmm.  We are heading into mango season, but after 12 years in the tropics I long for fresh and wonderful stone fruits.

A trade sounds good.  Your recipe looks so good. I haven't managed to get to the forum much recently, but as always am delighted when I get here and see such wonderous food.  I'll get to it soon I hope.

I'm recovering from a liver biopsy - so a bit of raw food could be very healing.
