Ingredients

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

  • 1 ½ cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 (9 ounce) package yellow cake mix

  • ¼ cup margarine, melted

  • 2 egg whites, beaten

  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

  2. Stir in the flour and cake mix. Beat until dough is smooth. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour. Lightly grease two baking sheets.

  3. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal pieces and form into rounds. Let rest for 5 minutes and then roll into 12 inch circles. Cut each circle into 10 wedges. Brush melted margarine onto the circles. Roll up the wedges, beginning at the wide end. Place on prepared baking sheets with the end of the roll on the bottom. Brush the rolls with margarine and beaten egg white. Sprinkle with poppy seeds. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 25 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
