Ingredients

  • flour - 3 1/5 cups (775 g)
  • eggs - 3 + 1 egg white; 1 egg yolk to spread
  • salt - 1 pinch
  • sugar - 1 cup (250 g) for cakes
  • butter - 2 tablespoons, or use lard
  • oil - 2/5 cup (100 ml)
  • baking soda - ½ tsp
  • yoghurt – 1 cup (250 g)
  • milk - 2/5 cup (100 ml)
  • yeast - 2 4/5 tbsp (42 g) fresh, baker's
  • vanilla
  • rum
  • lemon zest - grated
  • orange zest
  • raisins

Preparation

Mix the yeast with part of the warmed milk, a little sugar and flour. Allow it to activate for 20-30 minutes. Heat the butter or lard with the oil. Knead a soft dough by adding flour to the yeast, butter, eggs, salt, the remaining sugar, baking soda, dissolved in yoghurt and finally the desired flavors.

Leave the ready kneaded dough in a warm place until nicely risen. Then divide it into 2 parts. Each part is in turn divided into 3 balls, which are shaped into oblong pieces and weaved into a braid. Optionally you can put nuts and raisins in between.

You can prepare 1 large, instead of 2 smaller cozonac pitas. Beat the egg yolks with a little oil and brush the tops. Leave to rise again for 30 minutes and insert in an oven, heated to 392°F (200 °C), to bake until ready. Put oil on top.
