This delicious poppyseed filling swirled bread ring, prepared with a tangzhong starter via gelatinization of starch in flour, kneaded in a bread machine, makes a great accompaniment to an afternoon tea break or a holiday brunch.

  • 180 g Tangzhong starter
  • 160 ml Buttermilk, lukewarm
  • 50 g Corn oil
  • 1 Large egg
  • 50 g Raw sugar
  • 7 g Sea salt
  • 220 g Bread flour
  • 250 g Wholewheat flour
  • 10 g Instant dried yeast
  • 100 g Butter, softened
  • 80 g Brown sugar
  • 2 Small eggs
  • 200 g Ground poppy
  • 100 ml Milk
  • 2 tbsp Chopped almonds, optional
  1. Place the dough ingredients in the bread pan in the order given above. Select the “Dough” cycle, and press “Start”.
  2. Cream butter and brown sugar together until well combined. Gradually beat in eggs until blended. Stir in ground poppy and milk until well mixed.
  3. When the “Dough” cycle is finished, transfer the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead it briefly. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a 1cm thick rectangle. Evenly spread on the poppy filling. Roll dough up, starting lengthwise to form a Swiss roll. Seal edges well by pinching close and and join the two ends to form a ring.
  4. Place it on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Cut slits 1-inch apart with a scissor or knife. Turn each slice on its side. Cover and let rise in warm place until double in size, about an hour. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Brush the bread ring with some egg wash and sprinkle the chopped almonds over if using. Bake for about 35 minutes until nicely golden brown.

Just gorgeous! Love the filling and sprinkling of nuts! I made a similar bread to be shared on Sunday, but I drizzled with icing and lost the beautiful look that yours showcases so perfectly! Merry Christmas, my friend!!!

rita cooks italian 20/12/12 12:05

Such a good tea time treat Angie! I read your post about Tangzhong starter, very interesting I have to try it. I'm not very good with starter...this made with flour and water seems easy.

Sam Hoffer / My Carolina Kitchen 20/12/12 13:10

It's gorgeous Angie and the shape of the dough is amazing. Would also be good with espresso.

Sweet Posy Dreams 20/12/12 13:45

Poppyseed cake is one of the traditional things i used to have while while I was living in Lithuania. Grandma always used to make it on Christmas Eve :) I have abandoned that tradition myself, but maybe this year I will try making some cake, bread or something with poppyseed :)

Unknown 21/12/12 02:20

Angie, who would have thought something so beautiful could be made in a bread machine, wow! Your bread looks amazing, delicious and easy to put together, thanks!

Beth 21/12/12 02:46

Another beautiful post, Angie. This reminds me of a sweet bread I used to bake called a Swedish Tea Ring. Your bread ring would be perfect for Christmas morning.

Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies 21/12/12 02:51

I can't believe you made this yourself! I wouldn't even know where to begin. You really do need to open up a bakery. :)

Mich Piece of Cake 21/12/12 05:03

What a beautiful bread! I am suffering from poppy seed envy because I keep seeing all these lovely bakes made from poppy seed but they are unfortunately banned locally so I can only admire yours online..

Veronica's Kitchen 21/12/12 23:37

Oh, how much I love this recipe using tangzhong starter! I can't find ground poppy seed, maybe I'll use ground black sesame instead! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Angie!

Christine Ho 22/12/12 14:19

Love tangzhong bread very much. Your kneading is so beautiful.

Beautiful bread, with my favorite type of filling. I love the idea of pre-slicing the bread to display what's inside - makes it all the more tempting!

This looks wonderful for the holiday season. I can pick up the poppy seeds mixture at a local store all made up and ready to go for such a cheap price. I've made swirl cookies and we all loved them. I know we would love this, and I would make it except for the tanzong starter...I need to try this!
