- 22 g yeast;
- 40 g honey;

Method of making Easter cake with honey and candied fruits
Making butter dough. We sift the premium wheat flour for baking through a sieve 2-3 times to enrich it with oxygen, and at the same time get rid of possible foreign inclusions. Add ground cinnamon and vanillin to the flour, as well as half a teaspoon of fine salt.
Heat the milk in a saucepan, then melt the butter in it, add honey. When the mixture has cooled to 35 degrees Celsius, dissolve the yeast in it. I usually use fresh yeast for baking, but you can add dry yeast, the manufacturer indicates the required amount on the package.
When the yeast is completely mixed with warm milk, pour the mixture into a bowl of flour.
Add the chicken egg to the dough, mix the ingredients first in a bowl, and then put them on the desktop. Knead the dough for 10 minutes, until it becomes elastic, uniform, pleasant to the touch and not sticky.
Put the dough back into the bowl, grease with olive or vegetable oil, leave for 2 hours. Do not put the dough in a very warm place, it needs to grow slowly.
Correctly kneaded dough and fresh yeast do wonders - a small "bun" grows almost 3 times.
Cut candied fruits into small cubes, add to the risen dough. Any candied fruit can be added to pastries - pineapples, pomelo, in general, the more varied, the tastier.
Weigh the dough with candied fruits, divide into two parts. This is not necessary, I just have small cake molds that do not need to be kept in the oven for a long time.
We put the dough in a mold, leave for 50 minutes so that the yeast starts working again and the dough rises, then grease the top of the cake with egg yolk diluted in water. We heat the oven to 220 degrees.
Put the cake in a hot oven, bake for about 15 minutes. Baking time varies greatly (ranging from 12 to 22 minutes), depending on the size of the cake and the characteristics of the oven.
When the Easter cake with honey and candied fruits has cooled down, it needs to be decorated. To do this, mix a teaspoon of egg white with powdered sugar, and then carefully apply the icing to the cake. While the icing is raw, decorate the top with finely chopped candied fruits.
Easter cake with honey and candied fruits is ready. Bon Appetit!
