I got the recipe from my grandmother who was taught to make it by her grandmother, who just so happened to be Baroness Anna Piriti-Farkas of Hungary.

Directions:

1

Add sugar, water, apple, raisins, cinnamon, and lemon peel to a saucepan and cook until syrup.

2

Stir in the poppy seeds, a fourth of a pound at a time. Stir until smooth and thick enough to spread. Cool.

3

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Cube the butter, if using, and cut it into the dry ingredients until it resembles small peas.

4

In small bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm milk and add to the dry ingredients, and knead until the dough comes together.

5

Divide the dough in half and roll it out into a rectangle. Spread the syrup on the dough in an even layer, and roll the dough (not tightly) lengthwise. Beat the egg and brush it on the top of the cake roll. Let the egg wash dry(about 15 minutes) and repeat 3 more times. This counts as the rising time.

6

Bake at 375° for about 45 minutes.
