6. Transfer the dough to the work surface sprinkled with flour and knead until smooth. In total, the kneading process takes about 15 minutes. The final dough must be non-sticky, soft, delicate and maintain its shape well.

Advice. You can roll up the worktop as needed.

Also called Hungarian cake, saviecuţă, baigli or bejgli, depending on different areas of the country, the roll with walnuts and poppy seeds is a very tasty dessert, with a fragile and thin dough and a rich filling full of vanilla and lemon flavors.

This variant of preparing the roll is an old recipe that my mother received more than 50 years ago from a Saxon neighbor, who is very good at cooking. At that time, butter was rarely used in dough, with lard being preferred because it was found in abundance. But the butter gives a finer taste, and the dough cracks less when used than lard.


2 tablespoons butter or lard,

6 tablespoons sour cream,

walnut filling (for 4 rolls)

1/4 cup hot milk,

grated peel of 1 lemon

poppy seed filling (for 4 rolls)

250 grams of ground poppy seeds,

1/4 cup hot milk,

grated peel of 1 lemon

1 beaten egg to grease on top, a pinch of salt


First, the mayonnaise is prepared. The fresh yeast is liquefied in a saucepan, mixing with a little sugar and lukewarm milk. Sift the flour and place in a bowl. In the flour in the bowl, make a hole in the middle, in which the liquefied yeast is poured and then it is lightly mixed with a little flour around. Set aside for about 15 minutes, until it starts to blister on top.

Meanwhile, separate the yolks from the egg whites, then lightly beat with the fork as for the omelet, then add the 6 tablespoons of cream in turn.

Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl.

Add sugar, salt and butter to room temperature in the flour bowl, stirring until all ingredients are incorporated. When the dough becomes sandy, pour the yolks with the cream and continue kneading until the dough comes off the edge of the bowl and on the hands. The dough is rolled into a ball, wrapped in foil and left to cool for 30 minutes.

Preparation of the walnut filling

The ground walnuts are mixed with the sugar, then scalded with a quarter cup of hot water. Continue mixing until a thick paste is formed.

Add a sachet of vanilla and grated peel of a lemon and mix well.

Half of the beaten egg whites are poured over the walnut paste and mixed lightly, until the composition becomes sticky, slightly aerated, but quite firm (does not flow).

The same steps are used to prepare the poppy seed filling as for the walnut filling.

The oven is heated to 180 degrees Celsius.

Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place it on the work surface, on which a thin layer of flour has been previously sprinkled. Divide the dough into 8 equal parts.

On each side will be stretched with the twister a rectangular sheet about 3 mm thick, about 20-24 cm wide and 28-30 cm long.

Grease each sheet in turn with a quarter of the filling, leaving a portion of about 2 cm ungreased on the edges.

The shorter sides of the dough are folded inwards by about 2 cm, to prevent the filling from coming out during rolling. The rolls are placed in a tray, leaving a distance between them.

Grease the rolls on top with beaten egg in which a little salt is sprinkled. Set aside for a few minutes, until the egg is a little beaten, then put in the oven.

Bake the rolls for about 30 minutes, until nicely browned. Remove from the oven and test with a toothpick if they are baked inside.

After cooling, the roll is cut into slices and ready to serve. We wish you good luck!

If you find it too soft, you can add 2-3 ground biscuits.

Preparation of the poppy seed filling. In a saucepan mix the poppy seeds with the sugar, vanilla sugar, grated peel of a lemon and add the milk. Put the composition on low heat and simmer for a few minutes. Add melted butter, finely chopped raisins, and let it rest bring to a boil, then turn off the heat and leave to cool.

Assembling the cake.In a 24x30cm tray, lined with baking paper and greased with butter, carefully spread the first sheet, prick it with a fork from place to place. Spread the walnut cream evenly in a thick layer over the first sheet, then spread the second sheet, prick it with a fork from place to place and put the poppy cream that spreads evenly in the thick start. Over the poppy cream add the third sheet and prick with a fork from place to place, so as not to deform during baking. Bake the cake in the oven at 180˚ for about 30-35 minutes. When it is browned on the surface, take it out of the oven and leave it to cool in the pan. it spread the apricot jam, powder it with ground walnuts and portion it according to everyone's wishes.

Heat the oven first and line the tray with oil and a little flour.
Break 2 eggs in a bowl to which add 2 more yolks.
The remaining egg whites are placed in another bowl and 4 more are added after another 4 eggs are broken. The yolks of the 4 broken eggs at the end you have to keep them for later. Therefore there must be 2 whole eggs plus 2 yolks in the first bowl and 6 egg whites in the second bowl.
Beat the egg whites until fluffy. Add 1/3 cup sugar. After washing the mixer utensils, beat the yolks and eggs from the first bowl with 2/3 of the remaining sugar, at a medium speed (about 3 minutes). Then add the walnuts and vanilla essence, continuing the mixture with the mixer.
You need to add flour, cocoa powder and cinnamon, salt and mix them with a mixer. Fill a cup with beaten egg whites and pour into the composition with the yolks, mixing with a spatula until the composition is homogeneous.
Then add the rest of the beaten egg whites.
The formed top is placed in the tray prepared at the beginning and placed in the oven for about 40-45 minutes.
After removing from the oven, leave to cool for 2 hours.
Remove the top from the tray, very carefully and place it on a serving tray.
Cut horizontally with a long knife and carefully lift the top. Spread the jam on the remaining side, then lightly place the top of the countertop.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving. Arrange on a plate with raspberries, pieces of orange and mint leaves.
