Simple Coconut Poppy Seed Cake

I noticed this recipe on a forum, it is also called quick cake with poppy seeds and coconut, but I say that it is still a nicer cake. Very good, with poppy taste and coconut aroma, in addition it is prepared quickly - perfect for the lazy and greedy :)


180 g
1 cup
Coconut flakes
1 cup
Poppy seeds
1 cup
3 pieces
White flour
1 cup
Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp
Baking powder
5 g
Sour cream
200 g
Lemon peel
1 tsp
Heavy cream (32% fat)
100 ml
Dark chocolate
150 g
2 tbsp

Step by step


In a bowl, beat the eggs with sugar and vanilla extract until foamy.


Melt 150g of butter in a bowl - then allow to cool.


Over the eggs and sugar add the cooled butter, mix well.


Next, 200g of sour cream, mix.


Then add the coconut, poppy seeds and grated lemon peel - mix well.


In a glass, mix the flour with the baking powder and add them to the previous composition. Mix the dough well so that it is free of lumps.


The dough is poured into a 26/28 cm tray, lined with baking paper. Bake for about 30-40 minutes at medium temperature.


Until the cake is baked, we will prepare the icing for it.

In a bowl, put on medium heat 100ml of sweet cream and 30g of butter - stir periodically until it starts to boil.


When it starts to boil, remove it from the heat, add the chocolate and the liqueur, and stir continuously with a spoon until the composition is uniform and all the chocolate melts - then set it aside.


When the cake is browned, take it out of the oven and place it on a plate.


Carefully distribute all the icing on the surface of the cake, be careful not to run it - pour more in the middle.


Then beautify as you like - I sprinkled coconut, and leave in the fridge to cool the icing. I didn't have time to cool him down, because I had guests - and he was fine anyway.

Good appetite!
