Directions

  1. In a saucepan, heat together milk, sugar, shortening, and salt until warm.
  2. Combine 2 cups of the flour and the yeast in a large mixing bowl. Stir in warm milk mixture. Add 3 eggs; beat with an electric mixer at low speed for 1/2 min, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat for 3 minutes at high speed. Stir in as much of remaining flour as you can. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in remaining flour to make a stiff dough, and continue kneading for 6 to 8 minutes. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, and turn once to grease surface. Cover, and let rise in a warm place until doubled.
  3. Meanwhile, pour boiling water over poppy seeds; let stand 30 minutes. Drain thoroughly, and place in a blender. Grind. In a small bowl, blend together ground poppy seeds, chopped nuts, honey, and lemon zest. Beat 1 egg white until stiff, and fold into poppy seed mixture.
  4. Punch down dough, and divide in half. Cover, and let rest for 10 minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll half of the dough into 24 x 8 inch rectangle. Spread with half the poppy seed mixture. Roll up jelly roll style, starting with the narrow edge. Seal the edge. Place seam side down, in a greased 8 x 4 inch loaf pan. Repeat with the other half of the dough. Cover. Let rise for 30 to 45 minutes, or until doubled.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 35 to 40 minutes.

I would not make this again. I cut the recipe in half. The poppy seed mixture was lacking in taste and quantity. The top browned too quickly, and the overall taste was bland. I had to throw it away. The other reviewer's use of 4 mini pans would probably spread the poppyseed flavoring around better.

This bread turned out amazing. I couldn’t find my regular loaf pan so I divided the recipe in half and made 4 mini loaves. It was more work this way, but definitely worth it. The semi-sweet mixture was delicious and not to over powering. Very tasty...next time I will add more walnuts.
