These are delightful and easy to make (apart from the dough part).
You can find the recipe for the dough here.
Poppy seeds are a bit tricky as apparently they may contain some amounts of opium, and not recommended if you have to take a drug test. On a positive note, my dog was barking like crazy the other night for hours, and i decided to give her one bun. She slept deeply almost immediately, i would say you shouldn’t drive after consumption…lol.
Dough as per a recipe here.
Poppy seed filling:
Poppy seeds -140 g, you can use less.
Milk- 1 cup.
Sugar- 3 tablespoons.
Vanilla sugar- 1 teaspoon.
Egg yolk- 1-2 bitten.
In a pot heat milk and poppy seeds for 5 minuets. Cover and set aside for an hour.
Drain thoroughly, and process in a blender/processor with sugar and vanilla sugar.
Divide the dough in two parts. Roll one part in a flat square 3 mm thick. Spread the poppy mixture on a dough.
Roll it to a sausage/snake shape. And cut 3-4 cm pieces.
Put the buns on a foil lined baking tray and put some egg yolk on the top of each piece.
Bake at 225 C for around 20 minuets or till nice and golden.
