Wonderful fragrant pastries - tender crumb, nutty taste, rich poppy filling. I am sure that it will definitely take its rightful place on the Easter table. I will definitely repeat this braid more than once. The dough was cooked in a bread maker - an excellent result. Will we try?
In warm milk, crumble the yeast, add 4 tablespoons of flour from the total amount and 1 teaspoon of sugar from the total amount. Mix it. Pour into a bread baking dish. Close the lid and leave for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, add the remaining dough ingredients to the bread baking dish. Set the dough preparation program (30 minutes of kneading plus 1 hour of proofing).
While the bread maker is working, let's do the filling.
Boil the milk with cinnamon and sugar, add the nuts and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir for 1 minute. Let it cool down.
When the filling cools down, add the protein and mix well.
Poppy seed filling.
Ground poppy seeds.
Bring the milk, sugar and vanilla sugar to a boil, add the poppy seeds and semolina in a thin stream and cook for 3 minutes, stirring. Cool the filling.
The dough is ready. Spread and divide into 2 equal parts.
Roll out a rectangle measuring 33 by 20 cm from the dough .
Apply the nut filling and roll it into a roll -the length of the roll is 33 cm
Roll out the second part of the dough and apply the poppy seed filling. Roll it into a roll.
Cut both rolls lengthwise - you will get 2 nut and 2 poppy strips
Twist the nut and poppy strips together - we will get 2 pigtails.
We put the pigtails in a greased split form with a width of 20 cm, put a glass in the middle. If there is a mold with a hole in the middle, use it.
Cover with a towel and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, brush the dough with yolk.
preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Baked for almost 50 minutes - focus on your oven!!!
