Makowiec Poppy-seed cake loaf



  • 1 lb. poppy seeds
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup candied orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 2 egg whites


  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


To prepare the filling

  1. Put poppy seeds in a small saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let stand until cool. Strain the poppy seeds through a fine strainer.
  2. Combine the poppy seeds, walnuts, and almonds in a blender or food processor and grind.
  3. Melt the butter in a skillet. Add the poppy seed mixture and sugar to the skillet and simmer over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the egg, honey, orange peel, lemon peel, and raisins. Whip the egg whites until stiff and then folk into the poppy seed mixture. Let cool.

To make the dough

  1. Prime the yeast in the warm water. Cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in the salt, and sugar, then mix in the yeast, eggs, egg yolks, sour cream, vanilla extract, and lemon rind. Once the ingredients are mixed and can form a ball of dough, turn out onto a work surface and knead for 8-10 minutes (or use a stand mixer to knead for 5-8 minutes) until the dough is smooth and satiny.
  2. To make the rolls
  3. Divide the dough in two. Roll out each piece into a thin, roughly square shape.
  4. Spread half of the filling onto each piece and then roll the dough up, sealing the seam and ends as tightly as you can.
  5. Place each roll onto a baking sheet.
  6. Cover with a damp towel or place the baking sheets into plastic garbage bags and set aside to rise for approximately 90 minutes.
  7. Bake in the oven heated to 350⁰ F. for 30 to 35 minutes, until the exterior is golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
  9. Once cool apply the glaze.
