Poppy Seed Cake

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 30 mins
Servings 4 Layers


  • 1 Box Almond Seed Cake Mix
  • 1 Box White Cake Mix
  • 2 1/4 cups Water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil



  • Heat oven 350 degrees F
  • Line cake pans with parchment paper* and grease
  • Mix the white cake mix, water, oil, and eggs for 2 minutes
  • Add poppy seed cake mix into the white and stir until combined** Pour into pans and bake for 25-30 minutes
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Let cakes completely cool before frosting
  • *Line pans with parchment paper or wax paper and grease sides of pan for perfection. This releases the cake from the pan without scraping it. **Mix just until combined. Do not want to over mix


  • For Frosting pour 32 oz. whipping cream in bowl
  • Add vanilla extract to taste
  • Whip until stiff peaks are formed. You can create a filling if you'd like. I just use the frosting as a filling too. To get all 4 layers, you will need to cut the 2, 10" cakes in half.
