Another very tasty recipe with poppy seed filling is the one I share on this page, Mohnkuchen. It has Austrian origins and was taken over in many countries that were included in the Habsburg Empire.
➡️ In fact, Mohnkuchen is a poppy seed pie that has a frail dough prepared with butter and a simple filling with poppy seeds.
