How to make it

  • Start with your yeast and water and 1 tsp. of sugar, let set
  • Then scald milk, before it cools add shortening, sugar, salt, and vanilla, then cool. ( I use the crisco butter flavored)
  • After it has cooled down add yeast and eggs to milk mixture, Mix
  • Add one cup of flour at a time until dough doesn't stick to fingers, hand kneed with love.
  • Grease Large mixing bowl, Place in warm place and cover. Let dough rise until double in size.
  • Divide in to six pieces, ( my Grandmother use to make 4 big ones ) I prefer 6 smaller ones.
  • Roll out one of the portions on a floured bake board to about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Brush on butter spread cinnomin and sugar and a little brown sugar within 1/2 inch of sides of dough, Rollup and tuck in side, Place on well greased or parchment paper on baking pan, with seam down
  • Cover and let rise again. For about 2 hours.
  • For the poppy seed
  • Roll out and just spread the poppy seed around to within 1/2 inch and roll up, cover and let rise the same.
  • Bake at 300 for about 25 min until golden brown.
  • Take out of oven place on cooling rack and brush with butter to keep crust soft.
  • After cool slice and enjoy!

  • 2 c. nuts chopped
  • 1 1/4 c. milk

    Yeah, I get to give you the first 555 on this! This just spells out comfort to me! I really appreciate you posting and sharing this great recipe! I love all the variations of this bread! The sweet popppy seed bread I sometimes buy at a local Russian store here. Where do you get canned poppy seeds? I was only able to find dry ones in the seasonings isle. But that's not the same, right? When you say 1/2 warm water, do you mean 1/2 cup? I saved this and will try next time I make sweet bread. Thanks again!
