  • eggs - 4 (set aside 1 yolk for smearing on top)
  • sour cream - 4/5 cup (200 g)
  • sugar - 1 1/5 cups (300 g)
  • butter - 3 1/3 tbsp (50 g)
  • salt - 2 pinches
  • yeast - 1 1/3 tbsp (20 g), cube
  • orange zest - of 1 orange
  • vanilla - 1
  • rum - essence
  • milk - 2/3 cup (150 ml), warm
  • flour - about 3 4/5 cups (900 g)
  • raisins - optional, and Turkish delight
  • almonds - sliced, for sprinkling, optional


All ingredients need to be at room temperature.

Activate the yeast, mix it with 3 1/3 tbsp (50 ml) of the preheated milk, 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp flour, until you get a thick mixture. Leave it to bubble. In the meantime, sift the flour in a large container and mix it with the sugar.

Make a well, pour in the eggs, which you've beaten lightly with a fork, plus the sour cream, pinch of salt, orange zest, essence, milk, softened or melted butter and finally the effervescent yeast. Knead a soft, nonstick dough.

Leave it in an oiled container, cover with a towel and leave it to double in volume.

Shape the risen dough very carefully into the desired form. Place it in an oiled and generously floured form. Mine was 10 1/4″ (26 cm) in diameter. Leave it to rise. You can also place it in the oven at 122°F (50 °C).

Once doubled in volume, smear it with the set aside egg yolk and sprinkle with sugar and sliced almonds.

Turn the oven up to 320°F (160 °C) and bake until ready.find similar recipes here
