Step by step cooking recipe
For the test: add sugar, salt and dry yeast to warm milk, mix and leave for 10-15 minutes.
During this time, foam should appear on the surface.
Although the yeast is fast acting, I still like to pre-activate it.
As soon as the foam appears, add the egg at room temperature, mix.
Why do we add the sifted flour in parts, I added it in three stages.
After all the flour has been introduced, add vegetable oil and knead the dough for at least 5 minutes.
The dough is soft and sticks to your hands a little, but do not add more flour, otherwise the dough will be hammered with flour and it will not turn out so soft and fluffy.
We make a ball from the dough, put it in a bowl and send it to proofing in a warm place (without drafts) for about 2 hours.
I proof the dough in a slow cooker on the yogurt program (40 gr) for 1 hour.
The bowl of the multicooker must be lubricated with vegetable oil.
For the filling: wash the poppy seeds, fill with warm water and leave for 30 minutes.
Then we drain the water and scroll the poppy seeds in a meat grinder 2 times.
To reduce the cooking time, I pierced the poppy with a blender, a knife attachment.
But the result is not the same, the blender is not crushed like a meat grinder.
Definitely poppy is better to scroll through a meat grinder.
I add apricot jam to poppy seeds and pierce with a blender for about 4 minutes.
The filling is ready.
After proofing, the dough turns out to be lush, porous and no longer sticks to hands.
I spread the dough on a silicone mat, on which I will bake.
Punch down the dough a little and roll it into a rectangle, the thickness of the dough is 5-7 mm.
We spread the poppy seed filling on the dough and evenly distribute it over the entire layer.
Do not reach the final 1.5-2 cm.
Roll the dough with the filling into a roll.
We pinch the edge along the entire length of the roll and also on the sides.
We turn the roll over with the seam down and cut it into 2 parts, not reaching the edge of the roll.
Then we put each part on top of each other to make a pigtail and then turn it into a circle to make a round braid.
Let the pie come up for 20 minutes, and then take 1 egg and 1 tbsp of milk and shake with a fork, and then grease the pie.
We send to bake in an oven preheated to 180 degrees for 35-40 minutes, but be guided by your oven.
It turns out a magnificent cake, in which there is a thin soft dough and a lot of poppy seed filling.
