Vegan Poppy Seed Roll

These poppy seed rolls have been hypnotizing me ever since the first day I got to try one. When I was young, my dad would bring them home every Friday night to eat for breakfast over the weekend. It was obviously my favourite part of the week. The tradition was short lived because my dad’s workplace moved… but that just meant the search for the most delicious poppy seed roll began.

Even though Easter has past and this treat is typically an Easter or Christmas food, I have been wanting to try making one myself! This recipe was great, I made a few adjustments that you can see below! I think next time I would like to add a hint of citrus in the glaze or in the poppy seed filling. If you are planning on making this play around and let me know how it goes!

The other great thing about this recipe is that it is vegan! High fives to all my vegan friends!

This roll is naturally so pretty with layers of poppy seeds poking out when sliced. It is definitely a crowd pleaser! The recipe makes two rolls so if you don’t need that much just half the recipe.

For old times sake I have one stored in my freezer waiting to take home to my dad the next time I see him, and maybe create a new tradition…

Thanks for stopping by,

Much Love, Anna xoxox

    Love this! My grandmother has always made this with milk and I am lactose intolerant. It’s not always fun having to find a lactaid pill to add with my poppyseed roll :). I have a question though.. after you tightly roll the doll, do you flatten it yourself or does it flatten out wider when it bakes?

    Thanks again! Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    • Thanks for stopping by Jessica! I am so happy to hear you will be able to try this recipe 🙂 I grew up on poppy seed rolls and am happy to share that passion 🙂 I made two rolls with this recipe, I didn’t flatten it, the dough expanded in the oven. Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes :):)

  4. These look delicious! I’m going to make them this weekend! Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

    Can you clarify the amount of Soymilk in the first section? I used a half cup but the dough was so wet I had to add almost 3/4 cup of flour extra. Thanks!

    • Hi there! Thanks for stopping by, so I adjusted the recipe slightly but the dough is a little sticky, this is because a non-vegan recipe calls for egg yolks, which will make the dough richer. I used milk instead. You could add 1-2 tbsp. of coconut oil to make this dough even richer but I didn’t this time. I am wondering if where you are preparing this is in an area that is more humid than where I live (Toronto, Canada) which could also affect the amount of flour required for this recipe. I hope this helps! Happy baking! xoxox
