I had ideas of how I could utilise the poppy seed filling I had staring at me from the fridge. Eat it on its own or over ice cream? That could work, but it’s barely enough reason to show you here. I had other plans.
This semi-sweet bread scroll is one of the more common loaves that may be found in the traditional Croatian household. So allow me to mix it up a bit.
I’ve added cocoa to the dough, formed it into a spiral and studded it with fresh figs. Traditional? Unlikely. But who cares when something so warm, soft, moist and delicious can come out of the oven.
I sure don’t.
That’s one way to use my poppy seed paste. Now, what else can I do with it?
