A Czech specialty that is delicious and easy to make. If desired, you can ice or glaze these and top with flaked almonds or other nuts. You can use apricot filling instead of the poppyseed filling. Also, if you don't have the round tins, you can bake the rings on regular baking trays (just be sure to place the seams of the rings are well sealed and placed downward on the trays).
You can find tinned poppy seed filling in Polish and Eastern European shops.

I've been looking for this recipe. It is like my deceased mother-in-law, a lady that taught me to bake. Thanks. - 25 May 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Definitely worth the (relatively small!) effort. The dough is very soft and rises well. I microwaved the milk (both times) rather than bothering with a pan. Substituted allspice for mace. Because we only had one 13.5 ounce can of poppyseed filling (the only one I could find, checking several European delis! you can find the finished cakes everywhere here, but not, apparently, the ingredients), we made one roll with that - the can was plenty, wouldn't need 21 ounces - and one roll filled with a cinnamon/brown sugar/butter/walnuts mixture. Yummy! - 05 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
