Something magical is about these soft sweet buns, filled with sugary chocolaty poppy seed filling and covered with chocolate based glazing.
My childhood favorites, that you could buy in every boulongerie in our town. Since I left Russia nearly 20 years ago, I never tasted anything like that. I was determined to find a recipe. After finding a few recipes on the internet and trying them in Galya’s kitchen, the results were not exactly what I remember they should be. Eventually a few things and methods have been changed and wow… what a satisfactory!
They went in two days: Peter was sneaking into the box all day long and then the next day quietly finished them, he just could not help it. They are fab!
Now I just have to try to recreate it again and this time to write everything what I do down 🙂
