I recently was in Germany and tasted a cake called Mohn Streusel cake. It was made up of a cake layer covered with a thick layer of poppyseed (mohn) and then a streusel layer. Can anyone suggest a recipe that would be similar? Thanks, thanks - it was delicious!

Here is a paraphrasing of the poppy seed filling for a strudel (Mohnstrudel), from "The German Cookbook" by Mimi Sheraton. I should think you could use this as the poppyseed layer in a Mohnstreusel.
1/2 lb poppyseeds, washed in hot water and drained
Simmer until thick with:
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar and 2 Tbls honey, or 1/2 cup honey
1 tsp powdered cinnamon
1 Tbls rum
1/2 cup raisins
optionally 3/4 cup crushed walnuts or almonds
Add until mixture is dry:
2 or 3 Tbls bread crumbs
