Easter bread

Basically, the same as a 500g tresse, but with some eggs, which makes it take longer to rise:

  • 425g white flour
  • 75g spelt flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 teaspoon dry active yeast (traditional), dissolve in part of the milk
  • 1tsp salt
  • 3dl milk (luke warm)
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 80g butter (softened, in small pieces)

Mix dry ingredients, then add yeast, milk and eggs, and add pieces of butter as it’s mixing. Mix (knead) for 10min.

Let rise for at least 2 hours (until doubled). You can place a raw egg in the middle for fun, it will cook…

Make a Tresse-style bread and curl it up to form a circular shape. Let it rise for ~30-min to an hour.

Mix 1 egg & 1 tbsp milk to make a glaze and glaze the bread.

Cook for 40min at 400F (not convection).
