Baking Desserts Recipes Sweet

Do you find a combination of poppy, curd cheese, and blueberries, odd? Don’t worry about it at all! It’s a delicacy 😊. This cake not only looks good but also tastes good. Years ago, I used to buy a similar cake in the center of Prague. I liked it so much that I tried to make my own version, which I will share with you today. Hope you will like it too! 🤗


  • 250 g all-purpose flour
  • 125 g butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 50 ml of cold water
  • 300 g ground poppy seeds
  • 450 ml of milk
  • cane sugar according to your taste
  • 500 g curd or cream cheese
  • lemon peel
  • blueberries


  1. In a larger bowl, mix the flour with the chopped butter into smaller pieces. Process into a crumb mold and then add cold water and knead the dough. Put it in the fridge for at least two hours.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the poppy seed mixture. In a small saucepan, cook the poppy seeds with milk and sugar over low heat until all the milk will evaporate.
  3. Take off the saucepan and let the mixture cool down.
  4. For the curd mixture, all you have to do is to mix the curd with sugar and lemon zest.
  5. Roll out the dough into a round mold with a diameter (24-26 cm). Move to the mold and pierce the bottom with a fork. Keep the remaining dough. You’re gonna use it as a last layer of the cake.
  6. Start with the first layer of cake. Spread the poppy neatly over the entire surface of the cake.
  7. Then carefully spread the curd layer and cover with blueberries (if you have sour blueberries, I recommend mixing them with a bit of sugar).
  8. Cut out the strips of the remaining dough and cover the top of the cake.
  9. Bake the cake at 180°C for 45 minutes. After baking, let it cool.
