Poppyseed Roll (Makowiec)

loading...

Poppyseed Roll – If you’re not Polish, a word like makowiec (Ma-KOH-viets) won’t mean very much. But if you are Polish, and grew up in a Polish or Eastern European household, the word makowiec arouses a hunger for which there is no other substitution. A dessert table in my childhood would not have been complete without this roll taking center stage.

This coffee Poppyseed Roll has a very distinctive taste that I absolutely love and crave. The poppyseed filling is a paste that is available in the baking or ethnic aisle of your grocery store.

Poppyseed roll was always around during holiday times.

After reading many recipes and putting my own spin on them, I have created what I think is the best poppyseed roll out there. The taste takes me right back to my childhood and I never wait until the holidays to make this very special dish.

We can never get enough of this Poppyseed Roll at our home. It’s addicting.

Poppyseed Roll

Poppyseed Roll – In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of the warm milk. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine flour, sugar, salt and eggs. Add remaining 1-1/2 cups warm milk, butter and yeast mixture. With the paddle attachment, beat until smooth. The dough will be very dense and sticky.

Poppyseed Roll – Scrape dough into a clean, greased bowl. Sprinkle the top with a little flour and cover. Let stand in a warm place for2 hours or until double in size. Punch down and turn out onto a floured surface. Divide dough in thirds and shape each into a rectangle using a rolling pin into about a 1/8″ thickness. The rectangle will be fairly large.

Poppyseed Roll – Rub a teaspoon of vegetable oil (or more) onto the surface of the dough, making sure to get to all the edges. Sprinkle the dough with sugar. Spread one can of poppyseed filling onto each dough rectangle. This can be tedious to spread, taking maybe 10-15 minutes for each roll. Sprinkle filling with 1 cup chopped walnuts. Roll the dough up like a jelly roll, turning ends under so filling will not leak out.

Place the jelly-rolls on parchment, silicone or a greased pan, cover and let rise again until double in size. Two rolls will fit on one pan.

Heat oven to 350o F. Brush tops of rolls with additional melted butter. Bake 40-60 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from oven and cool completely. You can dust with confectioner’s sugar or make a glaze (confectioner’s sugar and milk)to drizzle over them, if desired.

 

The rolls also freeze really well and taste fantastic!!
