Ostro’s Poppy Seed Oil Cake

This simple yet delicious Poppy Seed Oil Cake is a staple in our house! It’s a light and barely sweet cake that’s perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. A final brush or drizzle of fresh hazelnut oil just before serving brings the fruity flavor to the front of your palate as soon as you take your first bite. Serves well with ice cream, sorbets and fresh fruit!


Joanne’s Tip:

I like to serve this refreshing cake with fresh fruit like strawberries and blue berries. Topped with a bit of hazelnut or walnut oil and coconut based whipping cream.

This Poppy Seed Oil Cake keeps very well. Wrap it and store it in the fridge or freeze a couple of pieces if you’re leaving town.
