Moldovanian  sweet bread recipe in 2021

* 1 kg of flour
* 10 eggs
* 220 g butter
* 320 ml milk
* 50 g of fresh yeast
* 300 g sugar
* vanilla and rum essence
* 5 g of salt
* peel of 1 lemon
* peel from 1 orange
* 40 g oil

* Filling:

* 200 g walnuts
* 200 g sugar
* 100 g cocoa
* free of rum
* cinnamon
* milk

The flour and eggs are put at least 6 hours before in the work room, and the flour is sifted beforehand.


The ground walnut is mixed with sugar and cocoa, essence and cinnamon and then scalded with milk. Add milk until the desired consistency is obtained.


60 g of flour is scalded with 100 ml of milk and beat until it becomes like a soft paste, like a cream. Separately soak the yeast with a little milk, 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of flour and mix well. Cover with a towel and heat up. After the yeast has risen, mix it with the mayonnaise composition kept warm, beat well, then put it back up, in a warm place.

Meanwhile, beat the yolks with half the amount of sugar and salt until they become like a cream.

When the mayonnaise has risen, put it in a bowl with flour, egg yolk cream, melted butter (warm, not hot), lemon and orange essences and peel, the rest of the warm milk in which I melted the other half of the amount of sugar. Knead this mixture well for 1 hour, then leave to rise for at least 2 hours.

When kneading, grease your hands with oil and continue kneading until the crust forms blisters. The dough should not be hard, but rather soft. If it is too old, add 3-4 beaten egg whites and knead well. Cover with a towel and leave to rise in a warm place.

When the dough has risen well, take pieces, spread a little on the table greased with oil, grease with walnut filling. Roll it, put it in the cake pan, let it grow well, grease the yolk with a little milk and put it in the oven on low heat.
