Poppy Seed Roll

This is one of my absolute favorite desserts, up there with tres leches, cookies and cream ice cream and cheesecake.


  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 package yeast


  • 3 2/3 cups all-purpose flour in a large bowl make a well in the middle of flour,add dissolved yeast into well
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons soft butter
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2/3 cup warm milk


Prep Time: 30 minsTotal Time: 1 1/2 hrs
  1. FOR THE DOUGH: MIX and KNEAD for about 10 minutes addin more flour if necessary. Let rise in a greased bowl, covered, for about 45 minutes, till doubled in bulk.
  2. Divide into two parts and roll each into a rectangle (using plenty of extra flour to help with stickiness)
  3. Spread with Poppy Seed Filling all over the rectangle.
  4. Roll up each rectangle from the long end like a jelly roll, pinch seams to secure edges, place on greased baking sheet. Brush outside with a raw egg (will give golden color when done)
  5. Preheat oven 350 degree F.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes (confine it into a smaller area, the roll likes to spread out), until wooden stick comes out clean
  7. Enjoy! Excellent with tea, coffee or milk!
