makovnjańća - Poppy Seed Rolls

Woot Woot we found bulk poppy seed at the localish Serbian market so it is time to make poppy seed rolls.  I went looking for the right Balkan recipe and found a gem that turned out wonderful.  See the recipe on Otilia's yourtube video. 

I loved the bread so much I am trying it as a loaf today.

3 1/3 cup Flour
2 egg yolks
2.5 teaspoons yeast
pinch of salt
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 stick plus 3 tablespoons melted butter
3/4 cup warm milk (I think I tend to end up using closer to a cup of milk to get the dough right)

mix, mix, mix in a kitchenaid.  let rest to double in size.  use dough as you wish :/

okay, so these directions kind of suck but I know what I am talking about and the link to Otilia's directions are the best.
