Walnut and Poppy Seed Rolls From Hungary - Makos-dios beigli

Please ! don't eat all the nut filling ...
It's a sweet Hungarian week at my kitchen, after baking 2 new and very tasty
Hungarian cakes from my new Cookbook, I knew what will be the next cake..the popular nut and poppy seed yeast rolls.yes, this is the old recipe, which is very good too, but I love new and authentic recipes,with few changes, you get a new creation every time. So, I got freshly ground nuts and Poppy seed, the Cookbook, and all the rest.. ; this recipe is based (with a change) on the Cookbook: Classical Hungarian sweets and cakes by Boldizsar Horvath, many sweet recipes but not a profession Cookbook.I think you need some experience in baking with this Cookbook,even there is something with the proof reading/the translation , the cakes are 100% ! [my father wants to take another trip to Budapest to buy me more Hungarian Cookbooks]..
This yeast dough is a quick one, no need for hours to let it rise, in some versions you bake the filled dough immediately, in another version you have to chill the dough for a short time.I use less sugar and fat than is needed in the original recipe , and it's still sweet.

Cool the fillings before spreading it ;And yes, the nut and poppy seed filling is very good,it can be eaten without the cake too.. :-)

I just bought poppy seeds last week because my Husband wanted just this. Thank you for sharing and I can't wait to try this.

I love poppy seed roll! However, it might be something you have to grow up eating to appreciate. When I've brought it to share at parties, people have been 1) surprised the filling was not chocolate and 2) a bit put off by the poppy seed flavor.

More for me...
