  • Add in 3/4 crushed walnuts.  Transfer to a cake form, don’t forget to spray the form from having the cake stick to it.  Put in oven for 20 minutes.
  • For the poppy seed layer, follow the same instructions just get all the water out of the poppy seeds. You can do that by picking up the paper towel. Add to the cake batter instead of walnuts.
  • For the raisins layer, also drain the water and add instead of walnuts. Otherwise the recipe for each layer stays the same.

  • After taking layers from the oven, let them cool down. Cut horizontally in the center.

Make the cream

  • In  a mixing bowl, beat 2 sticks of softened unsalted butter. (Until smooth.)
  • Add in 1 can of unsweetened condensed milk. Beat until starts to thicken.

Put the cake together!

  • In a small shallow bowl, add one cup of water and 1 teaspoon of sugar. This is to make the layers more moist. The whole cup of water should be enough for all the layers, meaning don’t need to0 much on each layer, just mostly around the edges.
  • Pour a bit of the sugar water mix on each layer, before you spread the cream.

  • You can decorate however your heart desires. I chose to make a chocolate glaze. (3 Tablespoons of unsalted butter, and 2 Tablespoons of milk. Put in the microwave for 45 seconds. Immediately stir in 2 Tablespoons of chocolate chips.)  Oh chocolate chips! If you are ever in Vancouver, BC Canada hop into Mink Chocolate Cafe. They make their own chocolate there and they sell milk or dark chocolate chips, seriously you will not find a better tasting chocolate chip.
