Why not bake apple poppy seed cake in a springform pan. With the apples and the lemon frosting the poppy seed cake gets a wonderful fresh taste.

Ingredients for the yeast dough

2 c flour
1 tbsp of dry yeast
1/4 c of sugar
3 tbsp butter, soft
1 egg
1 pinch of salt
1/2 c of milk, lukewarm
Some flour to dust the dough and some flour for the work surface.

Pour half of the flour into a large bowl and form a pit in the middle.
Add the yeast, 1 tablespoon of sugar and some of the milk into the pit and cover it with the flour from the sides. After about 15-20 minutes, the beginning of the fermentation is then very easy to recognize, add all other ingredients and process to a supple dough. Cover the dough with a little flour and place a dish towel over the bowl.
Place the bowl to the side and allow the dough to rest. Just do not hurry, the dough should double its volume. I leave the dough an hour or two.
Then knead the dough very well and roll it out with a noodle wood to a rectangle, about 0.2 in thick.
