Pie with poppy seeds and yogurt is one of the versions of Turkish baklava that has so many variants.

In so many variations, we found one that we really like because of the sweet filling that is added to this pie.

When we add this sweet filling with eggs and yogurt to the crust, we can fill it however our heart desires at that moment.

This time we decided to make one of the favorite versions of this cake because we really like poppy seeds.

You need some time, but you get a juicy and tasty cake that does not leave you indifferent.

Try it and enjoy!
