As I previously said, I love poppy seed and all kneaded food that contains it, so I'm continuing my poppy seed journey with this great recipe for a roll with poppy seed filling.

  • 450 g flour
  • 125 g fat
  • 1 egg
  • 1 yolk
  • 1 dry yeast
  • 250 ml milk
  • 75 g sugar
  • grated zest
  • 250 g of milk
  • 250 g ground poppy seeds
  • 250g sugar 
  1. Knead dough from yeast, flour, fat, egg, sugar and milk. Add grated zest for better smell. Leave kneaded dough  to stand for 30 minutes in a warm place. 
  2. Mix milk, sugar and poppy seed in a separate bowl. Boil this mixture on a low heat until it thickens. 
  3. When dough is ready, roll out a crust with a thickness of a finger. Apply the filling evenly over the dough and fold crust in a big roll. 
  4. Coat with egg yolk and bake at 180 C, for about 40 minutes.
  5. When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar
