My mother-in-law used to make a delicious sweet bread that was rolled like a jelly roll with poppy seed paste inside, (plus another one with walnut paste inside). Both sweet treats were devoured very quickly whenever we received a loaf or two from her... of course she had a special way of making it.
Whenever I see any poppy seed strudel for sale at a farmers' market or bake sale, I purchase a loaf for my husband. His eyes light up like a Christmas tree when he sees this special treat, and even though the poppy seed roll will never replace his Mom's baking, he consumes every last morsel all the same... It seems that many Europeans made this type of sweet treat, and I found a recipe for the poppy seed filling just in case you wanted to try it.
As they would say in Austria... Mahlzeit!
After 2 years of procrastinating, I finally have a facebook page! Please check it out here, and 'like' me...
