Have we had enough of poppy seeds yet? Nope! This Christmas dessert is made in no time, you don't even have to turn on the oven. All you need is a blender and a freezer. In Slovakia, poppy seeds, walnuts and dried plums had to be on every Christmas table. Traditionally, this cake was round with a hollow in the centre. Inside, there were seeds of next year's crops as well as honey and garlic. Cake was then cut and every animal received a piece as a symbol for a generous harvest the following year. Don't share this cake with your pets though, or if you do, first, take a bite yourself.
