Ukrainian Poppy Seed Roll, Makivnyk, a lovely sweet yeast bread that I made with spelt flour, filled with poppy seed, walnuts, and raisins, for our monthly challenge, Eat The World. Not too sweet, flavored with honey, lemon zest, and juice, this Poppy Seed Roll is a delight to eat any time of the day.

This month, our “Eat The World” challenge takes us to Ukraine! I chose to bake a traditional Poppy Seed Roll, one of the most loved and popular sweet yeast bread in all the Eastern Europe Countries. The filling can be made with only poppy seeds, however, I read that added walnuts and raisins are welcome and they are indeed a great addition!
