May Bread

I learned to bake these in the 5th grade home economics class! I've baked them regularly ever since, and they are super easy to bake. However, I got lost in a book and forgot about them so these became a bit more golden than they were supposed to. Oops.

Here's the recipe if you'd like to try....

Poppy seeds bread
ca. 8

1 dl cold milk
50 g yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
100 g butter
300 g flour (5 dl)
1 egg + poppy seeds

1. Mix yeast and milk in a small bowl
2. Crumble butter in flour in a larger bowl
3. Mix all ingredients in the big bowl
4. Roll the dough to 20x65 cm
5. Brush the dough with a beaten egg
6. Fold the dough into three layers
7. Brush with egg and sprinkle with poppy seeds
8. Cut into ca. 8 pieces
9. Leave for 30 minutes
10. Bake for app. 12 minutes at 220 degrees C


  1. Lovely bread, must I must know...what book were you lost in?

  2. Just noticed the extra "must" up there. Oops. I shall look up Stoner. Thanks!
