    ground
  • 1 package / 37 g Vanilla pudding (or 3 tbsp Cornstarch+1 tsp Vanilla extract)
  • 4-6 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Lemon peel, grated
  • 80 g Almond, chopped or sliced
  1. Place all the ingredients for the dough, except butter, in a mixing bowl fixed with a dough hook and beat at slow speed for 1 minute. Switch to the medium speed, and continue to beat for 3 minutes until a dough forms. Cut in butter gradually and mix for approx. 5 minutes until gluten is fully developed, i. e. elastic, smooth, non-sticky and leaves from sides of mixing bowl. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and let rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  2. While dough is rising, prepare filling. Cook 400ml milk with ground poppy in a pot for 3 minutes over the medium heat. Combine together the pudding powder, 100 ml milk, honey, cinnamon and grated lemon peel and add in the poppy-milk mixture. Boil and stir in sliced almond. Blend thoroughly. Cool down and ready to use.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into half, each about 430 grams. Divide into thirds. Press and roll each part into a 25cmx30cm rectangle.
  4. Spread the poppy filling and tightly roll up. With a serrated knife, cut the roll into 8 sections. Place them in a baking tray lined with parchment paper and let rise for another hour until doubled in volume. After proving, brush them with egg wash. Garnish with a candied cherry in the middle and bake in a preheated 180C/350F oven for 15 minutes. Sift the icing sugar into lemon juice to combine and brush over top of bread rolls.
