Description

Poppy seed kolachi is a wildly popular Eastern European treat that most find irresistible, especially paired with a great cup of coffee. Poppy seeds are found whole sprinkled on breads, rolls and cookies, but to release their true flavor you must grind them. Our fresh ground poppy seeds give our filling the perfect creamy balance of slightly nutty, pleasant bitter sweet fruitiness, that we all remember from Mom and Grandma's poppy seed koalchi!

Traditionally, poppy seeds are a symbol of wealth and found in food on every table at Christmas & New Years, wishing for prosperity in the new year. Poppy seed kolachi makes holiday gift giving easy, but order early because they go fast. Today we enjoy them at all family gatherings along side the traditional walnut and apricot kolachi, where it's also tradition to make them disappear! We love them with raisins too.

With variations among origin, three things poppy seed rolls have in common are family tradition, homemade quality, and great memories. Maybe you've heard Mom or Grandma mention them by not only poppyseed bread, cake, and strudel, but also by the old world name. All of the terms that start with an "M" mean poppy seed. Three that we hear most often are Hungarian makos beigli, Polish makowiec, and Slovak makovnik. Others are Austrian mohnkuchen or mohnstriezel, Bosnian or Croatian makovnjaca. The Czech term is makovy zavin, German mohn strudel or mohnstrudel, Lithuanian aguonų vyniotinis, Russian bulochki s маком, Ukrainian makovyi knysh. What do you call these poppy seed rolls? Let us know, we love hearing from you! Share your tradition with us below as a product review.

No matter your ethnicity, we hope our rolls can fulfill your baked good traditions, and bring back some sweet memories!

Love them!
Your poppy seed strudels ( Moonkuchen ) are as good as my mother used to make - tasty and you don't seem to save on the poppy seeds. I love them and would eat more if, what I fear, are many calories in each piece!

I love the flavor of these products. However, to make them as good as my grandma's, I mixed confectionary sugar with milk and basted the tops of the cakes. With this added step, my friend and I truly felt as if we were back in our Polish communities.

3 Kolachi rolls I ordered online Saturday arrived today. I couldn't open the Poppyseed fast enough to get a slice. Delicious, so reminds me of what my grandmother made. I haven't made these for many years, and now that I have found Butter Maid I am happy to have a source for high quality Kolachi. Worth every cent that they charge. I put one in the freezer for later because I know 2 will be gone quickly. Excellent in taste & appearance and were shipped nicely. - Pat Morrison, La Crescent MN

When i grew up in NJ we were able to get the poppy seed Kolachi roll and the walnut, but living in NC could not find it anywhere. so I started to make it, well the ingredients were not available here so i would have to order by the case, which was very expensive plus i had to still make it. It never came out the way I remembered it. But when I found Butter Maid Bakery I said I will give it a shot. Well I received my order today and couldn't wait to open it, me and my husband got into it and was like Wow! this is absolutely fantastic!!! It was just like i remembered only better!!!

Real Homemade Rolls
I found your bakery online during my search for Kolachi Rolls. My grandmother used to make them before she passed away and mom still makes them during the holidays. I purchased the walnut and poppyseed rolls and had them shipped to my mother for her birthday. I was so anxious to hear what she thought and when she tried them she could not believe how great they tasted. She said they tasted just like the ones they have baked for many years. So, I ordered them for myself and have to say they are amazing. They truly are the real homemade rolls I grew up eating. We will definitely continue to order fron your bakery and thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job making real homemade treats!!!

Nothing compares
Everyone at Butter Maid Bakery must have baking in their genes because you all Rock! After searching high and low for a poppy seed nut roll, I arrived at your website. My aunt made the best nut rolls, well so I thought, that was until everyone in my family tasted Butter Maid Bakery's Nut Rolls!! Hands down nothing compares to yours! My brother is a commercial fisherman (scalloper), who spends a lot of time at sea. He is the person who missed my Aunt Mimi's poppy seed nut rolls the most since she pasted away. I always wanted to surprise him with a comparable nut roll to make him feel at home and comfort during his long trips at sea. And boy did your rolls do it!! So my dearest thank you goes out to everyone at Butter Maid Bakery for so greatly fulfilling his taste buds (beyond imaginable) and for the quality, love, and care you put into everyone of your products.
Next on our list is the pumpkin roll cake!! My brother loves falls time and pumpkins hehe!!!

Best He's Ever Had
As a Czech descendant (on both sides), I've been a poppy seed swirl fan since childhood. And I always mail my grandpa one for his birthday. When our favorite bakery in NYC stopped selling them, I had to do a hunt to find a new source for our favorite treat. I sent him Butter Maid's and he said it was the BEST he's ever had! And that's saying something because he's had a lot! I'm now sold on Butter Maid. What a lucky find. If the cranberry walnut roll is half as good as the poppy seed, I can't wait to try it!

Customer For Life
I don't know how she did it, but my now-deceased mother always hosted Christmas Eve and Day dinners. She was an angel and a superb Polish cook.
Among her holiday repertoire, she made poppy seed and nut rolls. Her dough was always tender rolled very thinly and she generously filled them with the poppy seed and nut fillings.
I have purchased these items in regular as well as ethnic grocery stores and they never could match up with those made by my mother and now, Buttermaid. Buttermaid topped even my mother's rolls. I have also purchased them from a nearby Polish Holiday Festival and those were made with skimpy amounts of fillings and the dough was tough and too thick. Needless to say, I have been so disappointed with my search for these tasty memories from my past.
At last, I ordered them, as well as other delicious confections, from Buttermaid. My search for these items is now over. I will always purchase from Buttermaid.
