Poopaki: From Grandma's Kitchen

Poopaki I believe is a Czechoslavakian bread dish, but one my brother couldn't get enough of as a child. Even to this day, when I ask what he wants for Christmas, he says apple streudel and poopaki.

Bread dough
Ground poppy seed

Take bread dough already mixed. Cut in small pieces and place on greased cookie sheet. Leave room between each. Cover with a towel and let raise until the size of walnuts. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.*

Before serving, pour boiling water over them just long enough to moisten. Pour off the water. Sprinkle with ground poppy seed and sweeten with honey.

You can buy poppy seed that is already ground and canned.

* Linda’s note: Oven temperatures may vary from 350 to 400 degrees.
