old world poppy seed roll

old world poppy seed roll
  • 1/2 pound poppy seeds
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup hot milk
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (100 degrees F/38 degrees C)
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, or more if needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg, separated - white reserved


  1. Place poppy seeds into a food processor and process until seeds are ground, about 1 minute.
  2. Mix poppy seeds with 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon melted butter, lemon juice, and hot milk in a bowl; stir to combine. Cover poppy seed filling and refrigerate while making bread (filling will set up and thicken as it chills).
  3. Mix yeast with water and 2 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl. Allow to stand until the yeast forms a creamy layer.
  4. Whisk flour with salt in a bowl; use a pastry cutter to cut 1/4 cup butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  5. Pour yeast mixture and egg yolk into flour mixture and stir to make a soft dough.
  6. Turn dough out onto a floured work surface and knead until smooth and slightly springy, about 5 minutes. If dough is too sticky, knead in more flour, about 2 tablespoons at a time.
  7. Cut dough into 2 equal pieces. Roll each piece out into a 12x16-inch rectangle.
  8. Spread half the poppy seed filling over each rectangle, leaving a 1-inch border. Fold the 1-inch border back over the filling on all sides and press down.
  9. Pick up the shorter side of a dough rectangle and roll it like a jelly roll; repeat with second rectangle. Pinch ends together or tuck ends under to prevent filling from leaking out.
  10. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; place rolls seam sides down on the baking sheet and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  11. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  12. Beat egg white in a bowl until frothy; brush the rolls with beaten egg white.
  13. Bake in preheated oven until dark golden brown on top, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven and cover rolls with a clean kitchen towel until cool to keep crust soft. Cool completely before slicing.
