Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl mix poppy seeds, butter, sugar, eggs, granola cereal/almonds and raisins. Stir until well blended.
  2. In a second bowl mix baking powder and flour. Add quark, milk, oil, applesauce, sugar, vanilla and salt. Using the dough hooks work into a smooth dough (first on low then on highest speed). Do not knead longer than 1 minute or dough will become sticky.
  3. Roll out on a floured surface into a rectangle of 35X45 cm. If the dough is too sticky, add a little flour.
  4. Spread with the poppy-seed-mixture and roll up starting on the longer side.
  5. Carefully place on a paper-lined baking sheet and cut a criss-cross-pattern into the top of the dough (about 1.5 cm deep). Brush with a little milk.
  6. In the preheated oven bake at 180°C/350°F for about 30-35 minutes.
