Traditional Hungarian Christmas cake recipe
Beigli: Beigli are the traditional Hungarian walnut or poppy seed roulades seen at Christmas time, Easter and for wedding celebrations. They have a firm tender crust, a crackled exterior and a moist filling. Extra fruit is added to the filling to give it extra moistness. The walnut beigli is most popular, but poppy seed lovers swear by their choice...usually both varieties are made at once. #Budapest #Pastry #Beigli
Poppy seeds make a perfect filling for many baked pastries such as Rogaliki, Quick Poppy Seed Rolls and many others. After purchasing canned seeds, I was very turned off by the ingredients. About then, I bumped into a recipe at Lea's Cooking and was glad to make creamy homemade poppy seeds.
