Poppy Seed Strudel / Mohnstrudel

Another yummy recipe...ideal to a cup of coffee..i found this recipe on www.globetrotters.ch
Thank you for sharing!



250 g flour, sieved

1 package baking powder (2 ts)

1 pinch of salt

120 g butter, soft

60 g sugar

1 egg

1 pinch of cinnamon

1/4 lemon, only peel, finely minced, a little cold milk


250 g poppy seeds, finely ground

40 g sugar

2 tbsp honey

40 g breadcrumbs

40 g raisins (to your taste)

1 pinch of cinnamon

2 tbsp rum

1/4 l milk


For the dough, sieve the flour and mix with baking powder and salt. Add soft butter, sugar, egg, cinnamon, and lemon peel. Quickly kneed into dough adding a little bit of cold milk. Cover dough and let stand in a cool place for 1/2 hours.

For the filling, grind poppy seeds in the meantime (that's the only way to get all the poppy seed taste!) and heat with sugar, honey, raisins, cinnamon and rum in a small pan over low heat. The poppy seed filling has to be smooth and a little wet. If it turns out too wet you can dry it with adding breadcrumbs after it cooled out. If it's too dry soften it with a little bit of milk.

Roll the dough on a floured surface into a 45x40cm rectangle and cut into two equal parts. Spread poppy seed filling equally on both dough halfs and roll up into a strudel. Put the two strudels onto a baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes in medium heat.
