My husband gave me a compliment today. He said he didn’t know he had an European bakery in his home. He then told me that I could sell my new creation for big money!
Very high compliments for my husband. He is a cafe/bakery connisuer. He liked the coffee treat, fresh bread, and what I now call Poppyseed perfection. A good day for baking.
At first I wasn’t convinced they were that good. I liked them. They were very tasty warm. For me the test would be after they sat out for the day. Would they have that wonderful texture when cool? Would the flavors work or contrast too much?
Well, tonight after everyone was in bed I gave them the final test. One bite and I whispered wow. These were outstanding! My husband is right. They would sell even as second day fare. They are that good.
I couldn’t help myself. I had to have a second one. After all, I am sure there won’t be any left by the time I get up in the morning!
Then I realized it was that serious. I took another roll out for photographs as they probably will be gone by the time I get up.
It was all the will power I had to walk away from that third roll. Poppyseed perfection was teasing me with the crunch of the seeds under a flakey olive oil crust. Topped with brown sugar, cinnamon, and Red Sea salt- perfection in every bite!
Oh how I want another bite!
I think I need to go to bed before the temptation is too strong!
