DIRECTIONS

  • In 1 cup of milk that is about 130 degrees F, whisk in 4 Tbls of sugar and 1 package of rapid rise yeast. Set aside in a warm place, covered for a few minutes.
  • Add only 3 cups of flour first.
  • Mix in 1 tsp of baking powder, 3 Tbls sugar and 3 Tbls oil.
  • Add the final cup of flour, if needed. If too much, add the 1-2 Tbls water. Work the dough so that it doesn't stick to the bowl.
  • Allow dough to rest again, covered, in a warm place for at least one hour, or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Divide dough in half. Roll out into a rectangle. Spread 1 can of the poppy seed filling to within one inch of the edges.
  • Roll the dough, from the longer side. Transfer to an greased baking pan, seam side down.
  • Beat one egg white and brush on to top of strudel.
  • Bake 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Repeat steps with the other half of the dough and the other can of filling for the second strudel roll.
  • If desired, you may ice the strudel by beating powdered sugar, some room temperature butter and a splash of milk.
