For the whole grain honey Striezel first mix the yeast with milk, egg, oil and honey until everything has dissolved and everything is a homogeneous liquid mass.

Then add the flour and cream cheese and knead everything until there are no more lumps and everything makes a nice tough, slightly sticky, dough.

This now for about 12 hours, or overnight in the, put in the refrigerator and let rise. After the dough has risen, preheat the oven to 200 degrees top and bottom heat.

Knead the dough again and bring it to room temperature. Then form three long rolls and intertwine them like a braid.

Mix 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of milk and brush the Striezel with it. Then put the whole thing in the oven for about half an hour, until a light browning starts everywhere.

For smaller Striezels or shapes (nut buns, small poppy seed strudel), the time is reduced accordingly. After the Striezel is taken out of the oven, let it cool on the baking tray.
