Recipe for Poppyseed Cake with Nut Filling?

I am looking for a poppyseed cake recipe with a cooked filling made with an egg, sugar and nuts. It is frosted with a 7 minute cooked frosting. I looked on a lot of cooking sites and can't find it. The cake itself can be made with a white cake mix with poppy seeds added. Thanks for your help

I don't know if this is the one you are looking for, but here is one I found.

"3 Minute Delite" Poppy Seed Cake

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
12 ounces vegetable oil (11/2 cups)
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
11/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 14-ounce can evaporated milk
1 jar poppy seed filling, see note
1 cup chopped nuts, optional

Sift dry ingredients, add liquids and mix until smooth, then add 1 jar poppy seed filling.

Beat well on medium speed of mixer for 2 minutes. Use a 10-inch angel food tube pan. Do not grease the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, 10 minutes or until tested done. Cool cake before removing from pan.


Note: You may substitute nut, prune or date filling.

I too have been on a quest to find the lemon poppy seed cake recipe that my mother used to make. I thought I had the complete Poppy Seed Cake and Filling recipe from my brother-in-law, but I only had the filling portion. This is what I have:

2 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp cornstarch
5 egg yolks
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
Commbine milk, sugar, cornstarch, salt and egg yolks.


Cook over low heat until thick and add butter and vanilla and stir. Let cool before pouring over cake. Add nuts if desired. Frost with favorite white boiled frosting.

I hope this is what we have all been looking for.

My mom used a fluffy white frosting.
