Easterbun for Every Year!!
« on: March 09, 2010, 12:57:23 am »
Hello!

Now here I am again - this time I'll put a recipe that my mother makes since I know myself! This one is a must  on the Easter Table but Not only in that time so I gave it the name "Easterbun for every year"
At Easter I  place the allusive Eggs and the Rest of the Year only brushed with egg or Sugar or Granite with sliced almonds I love this  so much!
My mother was a little skeptical when I said I would adjust the recipe to Thermomix but when she saw the results ... hehe :o

I hope you like it and here goes:

EASTERBUN FOR EVERY YEAR


240 ml Milk
140 grams Sugar
90 grams of Margarine
10 grams of oil
1 pinch of salt
20 grams of fresh Baker's Yeast

ALL THESE INGREDIENTS INTO THE TMX  - 37 - 3 minutes - level  2

Now join:
680 grams of flour
2 Eggs

4 minutes - Speed  ::
Depending on the size of eggs may be that the dough is too soft - then put one more tablespoon of the fllour and mix 30sec. more

Now place the dough in a bowl  and leave to rest for 45 minutes to 1 hour (depends on temp. Environment)
 

After this time put on desks



Divide into 3 rolls and form



Form a braid (dont squeeze too much)


And I like to decorate:
On this one I  put eggs and then Brush (mixture of yolk and milk) and then put sliced almonds



Let rise again for 20 to 30 minutes and place in preheated oven at 175 for 30 minutes!

Here in the middle of cooking



On Easter Sunday our breakfast is this :) :) :)

As I took this picture I have to eat it today :-)) :-))

That looks delightful isi! Thanks for the great explanation and the pictures.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Isi,  thank you for the recipe and the photos.   Are the eggs boiled before you put them on the plait?  I will certainly be making this,  although mine will not look as neat as yours. :D :D

Yum - thanks Isi  - it is good to see the different traditions/foods for Festive occasions  :-* :-* :-*  Great idea - think the Greeks have a similar loaf.
