  • milk - 4/5 cup (200 ml) warm
  • yeast - 1 packet
  • yoghurt - 5 tbsp
  • eggs - 3 (1 yolk for spreading)
  • salt - 1 tsp
  • sugar - 3/4 cup
  • oil - 4 tbsp
  • butter - 1 tbsp (lard)
  • flour - 3 1/3 cups (800 g)

How to cook

Dissolve the yeast in half of the slightly warm milk with a bit of sugar. Sift the flour into a large baking dish, make a well in the middle and add the yeast and eggs. Gradually knead a dough by adding all the other products.

In the remaining half of the milk, dissolve the remaining sugar. Knead the dough well, cover and leave it in a warm place to rise. Then place it on a buttered surface. Do not knead, but use your hands to tear off identical balls, to form them into strips and the strips into rosettes (snails).

Arrange the florets in a buttered baking dish and allow them to rise again. Brush with an egg yolk beaten with a little milk and put it to bake in a preheated 356°F (180 °C) oven. Optionally, sprinkle some sesame or poppy seeds.

Initially, bake for 10 minutes on the lower element only, then turn on the upper one on too.
