Christmas poppy seed pudding

To create a poppy seed pudding cut the butter horns into slices A inch/1.25 cm thick and soak in the milk. The slices should be soft but not mushy. Grease a heatproof mold, add the butter horns and dry out in a preheated (medium) oven for 10—15 minutes. In the meantime, grind the poppy seeds and mix them with the confectioners’ sugar. Sprinkle this mixture over the hot horns and bake for another 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, drizzle generously with honey, and serve hot.
