Seeds often get pushed to the sidelines in baking, condemned to health foods and flapjacks, garnishes or wholesome loaves. It’s a shame, because they’re a fine alternative to nuts and grains. Poppy seeds in particular are a pleasure to cook with; their intense nutty, earthy flavour defies their minuscule size.
Poppy seeds can be ground, too, into a fine meal that can be stirred into biscuits, marbled in cake batters or – as in the Polish poppy seed cake below – spiralled in soft bread dough.
