Poppy Seed Strudel

, , , , , ,

This poppy seed strudel is not the classical baked yeast dough, it’s a short pastry with sour cream.
So it’s perfect if you don’t have yeast.

I find this poppy seed strudel really yummy! A delicious poppy seed filling and the dough is also really moist and tasty.

I think the balance between dough and filling is just perfect. Just try the recipe, I’m sure you will agree.
