This recipe has been in my family for many many years. As far as I know myself. I think it has some hungarian roots, I`m not sure. But what I know for sure is that this yummy baigli is on our Easter and Christmas table every year.
This recipe is for 4 pieces, 2 with nuts and 2 with poppy seeds. If you want to do less or more, just split in two the ingredients, or double them. For the dough you need:
- 500 gr flour
- 1 butter
- 2 eggs
- 3 spoons sugar
- pinch of salt
- peel from 1 lemon
- 20 gr yeast (150 ml milk+1 spoon sugar)
You have to knead all the ingredients. First start with the flour and butter, add the eggs, sugar, salt and the lemon peel. Finally, add the yeast. If you don`t know how to work with yeast check out this post. For this recipe, just put the yeast in 150ml milk and add 1 spoon sugar. When you`re done kneading, leave the dough rise for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, you can do the filling. For the nuts filling you need:
The filling is very easy to prepare. First mix the nuts with the sugar, and then add the milk (the milk has to be hot).
Fot the poppy seed filling you need:
- 150 gr poppy seeds
- 100 ml milk
- 4 spoons sugar
Just do the same thing you did with the nuts filling. Mix the sugar with the poppy seeds and then add the hot milk.
Tip: If the filling becomes hard to work with, just add some a little bit of warm milk to it. The filling should be easy to work with.
And now that everything is prepared let`s start baking baigli!
Split the dough in 4 equal parts. Put one part on a wooden board or kitchen counter (first pour some flour so the dough won`t be sticky). And use a roller pin to strech out the dough, try to make it rectangle shaped. Put half of the nuts filling over the dough, using a knife can be easier. Try and put the filling all over the dough.
Then, just roll up the dough.
Do the same thing with the poppy seed baigli.
And put them in a tray.
Beat an egg, and using a rubber brush, grease the top of the baiglies. And stick a fork a few times into them.
Put them in the oven, and let it take for about 45minutes, at medium heat. You can make the toothpick test to make sure they`re done.
Don`t they look yummy? And with a glass of milk they`re the perfect sweet treat. Enjoy, and if you have any questions, don`t hesitate to ask :)
