  • 1 kg Hard Flour

  • 600 g Milk, lukewarm

  • 30 g Sugar

  • 75 g Fresh Yeast

  • 15 g Salt

  • 100 g Butter, melted

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 Egg Whites (to spread)

  • Almond Slivers (to sprinkle)

Recipe directions

  • In a bowl, add the yeast, sugar, a little of the 600 grams of milk (lukewarm), and stir to dissolve the ingredients in the milk.
  • Add two tablespoons of flour and mix well. Leave it aside for 5 minutes to activate the yeast.
  • In a large bowl, add the salt, the remaining milk, the eggs, and stir.
  • Add the remaining flour and the activated yeast. Knead lightly to combine the ingredients and form a dough. Then gradually add the melted butter and knead until the butter is fully incorporated.
  • Cover the bowl with its lid or a towel and leave it aside for 40 minutes for the dough to rise.
  • 40 minutes later, knead the dough lightly to deflate it and divide it into 8 equal pieces of 200 grams each and one larger piece, about 250 grams.
  • Slightly press the 8 pieces of 200 grams each and add them around the edge of a 28 cm round baking tray, arranging them so that one piece of dough overlaps the adjacent one at the edge. Add the larger piece in the center of the tray and press the dough down. Cover with a towel and leave it aside for 20 minutes for the dough to rise.
  • 20 minutes later, brush the dough with beaten egg white. Optionally, sprinkle with almond flakes.
  • Preheat the oven to 170 C (340 F) and bake for about 50 minutes.
