- For the dough:
- 125 grams Bread (strong) flour
- 125 grams All-purpose flour
- 1 tsp Instant dry yeast
- 50 grams Sugar
- 60 ml Milk
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 50 grams Butter
- 30 grams Sour cream
- 1 Egg
- 1 few drops Vanilla essence
- 1/2 tsp Grated lemon peel
- For the filling:
- 80 grams Blue poppy seeds
- 100 ml Milk
- 25 grams Butter
- 40 grams Honey
- 1 tbsp Finely chopped orange peel (candied)
- 40 grams Finely chopped raisins
- 1/2 Egg
- 25 grams Sugar
- 15 ml Brandy
- Place the dough ingredients into the bread maker and set it on the "dough-making course." While that's working, prepare the filling.
- Blue poppy seeds are hard to find in stores, so I ordered them from "Amika" (a local restaurant ingredient import store).
- Wash the poppy seeds and place them in a colander to drain. Place the poppy seeds and the milk into a pot and cook off the liquid.
- Grind the boiled poppy seeds with a mortar and pestle.
- Return Step 4 to the pot and reduce the heat to low. Add the butter, honey, orange peel, raisins, and sugar, and mix it all together.
- Beat the egg well and add to Step 5. Mix until it becomes a paste. Lastly, add the brandy.
- Remove the dough from the bread maker and place it on a plate. Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit for 15 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Place the dough on a work surface dusted with flour, and use a rolling pin to roll it out into a rectangle.
- Spread the filling on top as shown.
- Roll it up from one of the long edges. Seal both ends so that the filling doesn't spill out.
- Bake in the oven.
- Once baked, let it cool. While still warm, cover with aluminum foil as shown. This will help it remain moist.
- Once it has cooled completely, coat completely with icing and it's done.
