How to cook poppy seed cake step by step with photos

For this pie, I used a dough of my own making, since. к. I'm not satisfied with the quality of store-bought puff pastry, and I couldn't find it. It's easy enough to make, and I loved the results. I can't tell if it lives up to its name " Puffed ", But I found the recipe under that name on the internet. If you buy the dough, you will need 880g. So, let's prepare the yeast starter. Dissolve yeast, salt and sugar in warm milk and add half of the flour. Place in warm place for 20-30 minutes.

After 30 minutes the pastry should be smooth, get bigger in volume. Add eggs and 45g. butter. Mix everything well.

Add remaining flour and leave in a warm place for another 30 minutes.

Then roll out the dough into a large rectangle about a centimeter thick and spread all the remaining butter on it.

Now roll up and slightly pinch the top and bottom edges of the dough...

... Then put the right and left sides together and press them together. Roll out the pastry carefully, being careful not to tear it. Roll up the edges again in succession, roll out and t. д. You have to repeat this process four times. Put ready pastry in the fridge for a while. This is about 1.2 kilograms. dough.

Now for the filling. I always buy ready-made. It's very convenient and delicious. If you don't have that option, then you need to make. Pour a glass of steep boiling water over poppy seeds and leave it for 15 minutes. Rinse the poppy seeds in a sieve and let the water drain away. Put the poppy seeds in a mortar, add the sugar and crush. Melt the butter and mix with the filling.

Divide dough into three portions. Roll out one piece of dough into a circle 25-30 cm in diameter., Turn the pie into a baking sheet and spread half of the filling on it.

Roll out a second circle of the same size, lay it on top of the first and brush with the remaining filling. Roll out the third circle, put it on top. Cut the pie into 10-12 quarters, starting from the center, about 2-2.5 cm from the edge.

Gently twist each piece once or twice.

Butter the top of the cake and place in a preheated 180 degree oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes.

While the cake is baking, prepare syrup. Remove the zest of the lemon, squeeze out the juice, mix in a saucepan with the sugar and vanilla sugar. Cook until a homogeneous and thick mass is formed.

Let the ready cake cool a little, spread the syrup well. Serve warm or cooled, either way is delicious!
