Poppy seed roll

Poppyseed rolls

 

I think poppy seed roll to Russians/Ukrainians is like cinnamon rolls to Americans.They are classic European sweet dough rolls with homemade poppy seed walnut filling.

Nothing beats homemade fresh goodies like pastries,rolls, and buns.The smell of baking fills the house making kids to wait impatiently for them to be done. Seriously….They are the best tasting rolls and especially good with cold glass of milk.

If for any reason you don’t like poppy seeds,you can make them with other variety of fillings like walnut+sugar,fruit preserve,raisins+sugar,cranberries or melted butter+sugar.

Ingredients for filling:

1 1/2 cups poppy seeds

1 cup water/milk

1 – 1 1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup walnuts

Dough:

2 cups warm milk  (not hot)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter melted (1 stick)

4 large or 5 medium eggs

3 tablespoons oil

1 tablespoon yeast

1/4 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

6 1/2 – 7  cups flour  [amazon asin= highly recommended or all purpose flour*

1 egg for egg wash

6.Let dough rise,about 2 +/- hours.

 

Place poppy seeds in a small saucepan and cover with water.Bring to boil then reduce heat to low  and cook for 10 minutes.When cooled,grind poppy seeds with walnuts using meat grinder.If you don’t have one you can use coffee grinder or good blender(if you don’t have any of that,it’s still ok not to grind).Grind before cooking poppy seeds.Mix in sugar and set aside.

  4. Beautiful post:) thank you and im loving the step by step pictures:)

  5. Dorothy Constants says:

    Some stores sell cans of poppy seed cake and pastry filling. I bought mine at Shoppers for around $3 for 12.5 oz. I followed the recipe and ended up with so much dough that I made four loafs using two cans of filling. Next time I will measure half the ingredience for two loafs.

  6. Have you ever cut the recipe for the dough and the filling. The capacity of my bread machine is only 3 cups of flour.

    Also some stores also sell already ground poppy seeds mixture, have you ever tried that or the Solo poppyseed in a can filling.

    I was very excited to see this recipe as the one I buy in the store is always dry.
