Cake Porn: Hi, My Name Is Poppy Streusel

…and I’m about to come in for a darn good forking!

Mohnkuchen

Erm…actually, it’s a snap from a family breakfast outing that took place a couple of weeks ago in my birth town in Bavaria. The one with the fork poised for attack is my brother, and that’s my mum on the left.

My categorical cake statement of the day: You can only get a decent poppy seed cake in Germany or Austria.

        I didn’t even know streusel was a real thing until last year. I thought they were just misspelling strudel on the summer school menu ๐Ÿ˜‰ Looks bloody good though! Definitely forkable ๐Ÿ˜‰

      And why not?!? A dire oversight, a gaping hole in their culinary repertoire, a gross neglect of cake worship!
      My bro’ certainly enjoyed it. I was too stuffed from a huge breakfast to even contemplate cake at that moment.

    I’m not a big fan of poppy seed after the time I mistook it for chocolate filling as a(n apparently farsighted) child. It was never the same…

        Like Anna said, they have it here in Russia, but it seems a pretty contained phenomenon. (I tried it in Connecticut in the area where there were lots of Germans/Austrians, so I guess that makes sense.)

    ‘Ooooh baby! Fork me good!” ๐Ÿ™‚

    I gotta admit, I haven’t had a decent poppy seed cake in ages. My mom makes a rather good one… and its certainly something familiar from Winnipeg.

    But… Mumbai? Jakarta? Rather scarce commodity here! So STOP making all us folks jealous that can’t indulge.
