My mother’s side of the family is Slavic. Consequently, the big family gatherings were filled with delicious and plentiful foods.  One staple of the dessert table was Poppy Seed Bread.  Now, the truly traditional pastry was a little different from what I’m used to.  You can find a good recipe for that here.  It is basically a rolled sweet bread with the poppy seed filling inside.  Kind of like cinnamon rolls but baked all together and...
