I. Have. Done. It! Muahahaha (that's an evil laugh by the way)
Ever wonder what to do with poppyseed filling, other than making my delicious hamantachen cookies? Look no further, for the most delicious poppyseed cake is right in front of you! And once again, I am amazed at the number of people who have never had poppyseed anything. Maybe its my southern roots talking but I was under the impression poppy seed is as common as snickerdoodles and grits...ok, point taken.
This tea cake is perfect for brunch and dessert. The buttermilk allows the cake to retain its perfect moisture level and the filling provides just enough sweetness. For a light dessert, a strawberry puree would be perfect. Oh, did I mention how simple it is to throw together?
Now, Ive gotcha :)
Btw, poppyseed filling is found in a can next to the almond paste in the baking aisle.
