Knead the dough until smooth, shape it into a ball and let it rest for about 30 minutes in a warm place to rise.

Put the honey, sugar and milk into the bowl and slowly cook for 10 minutes. Take the pot off the stove and mix in sweet cream, ground walnuts, crumbs, eggs and lemon peel. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Spread filling evenly over the dough, sprinkle with raisins and roll it into a jelly roll. Place into a well greased pan and carefully join the ends.
