Ingredients

  • eggs - 1 + 1 yolk for smearing
  • milk - 1 2/5 cups (350 ml)
  • yeast - 1 1/3 tsp (7 g), dry
  • flour - 3 1/3 cups (800 g)
  • butter - 1/3 cup (80 g), melted
  • sugar - 1 tsp
  • salt - 1 tbsp
  • oil - 3 tbsp
  • vinegar - 1 tbsp (I used apple cider vinegar)

Preparation

Heat the milk, pour in the yeast, sugar, 3 tbsp flour and stir. Wait for the yeast to activate and pour this into about 2 cups (500 g) flour, the salt, oil, vinegar and stir.

Gradually add the remaining flour. Knead a soft, nonstick dough. Leave it to rise until tripled in volume, then divide it into 2 parts. Roll out 1 part into a round sheet, about 1/4" thick.

Smear it with the melted butter, roll out the 2nd sheet and cover the 1st with it. Roll them both out with a rolling pin so they stick together slightly. Cut the resulting sheet into strips on both sides with a knife (but not all the way through). You need to leave about 2 finger widths uncut in the middle so you can wrap the strips on top.

After you've made the strips, start overlapping them across the middle diagonally until you obtain a sort of messy roll. Transfer it carefully into an oven dish, wrapping it into a bagel shape. Both ends need to meet.

Leave it to puff up slowly for at least 15 min., smear it with the egg yolk and then put it in a preheated 356°F (180 °C) oven until reddened. Optionally, you can sprinkle it with seeds of your choice. The result is a magnificent, thick and fluffy loaf! Bon appetit!find similar recipes here
