One more Polish traditions is the Poppy Seed Roll. Similar to the Polish Nut Roll, the Poppy seed roll is a delicious and soft filled sweet bread that is perfect for your holiday breakfasts and brunches.
My family grew up with the Polish Nut Rolls that my grandma, and then mother, would make. Every Easter and Christmas, the nutroll would be one of the required items for our mornings. It was a nice quick breakfast we would have just before heading out to Church services.
I didn’t realize growing up that there were other traditional Polish rolls that would be great to have as well. For anyone who is allergic to nuts, it must have been torture to see this delicious sweet delight and not be able to have any. Now, we know! The Poppy Seed roll is a great alternative.
I recently learned from my father that my grandma also used to make a roll with a prune filling. My mom never made it, so I haven’t had it yet. But, that will be my next Polish recipe that I try (I have some of the dough in the freezer to try it with).
I hope you enjoy this recipe. And I hope you like this new format where all this silly bloggy stuff is all after the recipe and not before.
