Poppy seed cake mix DIY

Nobelhart & Schmutzig

Our cake mix with poppy seed from Fläminger Genussland puts the focus on the subtle, elegant aroma of poppy seeds – that’s why we’ve kept it as pure and simple as possible. By the way: it’s important to store poppy seeds in a cool and dry place as they tend to go rancid otherwise.

Our DIY poppy seed cake is always freshly prepared for you, which is why pick up or shipping can be done on the day after the placement of your order.

How to prepare your cake

Pour the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add three eggs and 145g of rapeseed oil, that’s roughly an empty yoghurt cup (200g) filled to the brim. Alternatively, you can use sunflower oil. 

Bake in a cake tin of your choice at 180 degrees for 25-40 minutes; the exact baking time will depend on the shape of the tin and your oven. The best way to figure out if your cake is ready is to poke a toothpick into the cake. If it comes out clean, it’s all done.

Nobelhart & Schmutzig
If Billy is to be believed, Nobelhart und Schmutzig only exists so that he can easily get his hands on the best food the Berlin and Brandenburg region has to offer. And so he can help himself to any of the 1308 different wines stored in our lovingly curated cellar….  But all joking aside, the motto at Nobelhart is:

Putting Local Food Back in Your Hands!

Nobelhart & Schmutzig has been “vocally local” from the start. Since first opening our doors in February 2015, we have grown fearlessly into our current role as Germany’s most political restaurant. This involves a conscious decision to shift the focus squarely onto the people, all from the greater Berlin region, who produce our raw ingredients. This self-imposed renunciation of products from afar, including lemons, tuna and chocolate, is the foundation of our eatery’s distinctive signature. There’s more at play here than just culinary aesthetics. Serving this philosophy also intrinsically means promoting environmental and economic sustainability for the people working with the bountiful nature in and around Berlin. It also involves pride in a sense act, even if too few understand it as such. And the ordinary shopping list very much serves as the stage for this modern brand of politics.  In addition to supporting raw ingredient producers from the Berlin region, Nobelhart & Schmutzig works closely with Die Gemeinschaft to establish a new and better eating culture for all. Good, healthy food should provide a future, perspectives and identity for the people who produce it and the companies that transform raw ingredients into fine products.
