Preparation method
Titled my kozunak * lazy * because deciding to save time and I saved a lot of preparations about performing a traditional recipe for kozunak. I will explain what I mean. Ah, if my mother read this somewhere its recipe in my performance ...

So, not pre-activated yeast, I decided to try the procedure, which prepare bread. In a deep pot, 2 times thoroughly sifting the flour, yeast added the vanilla, grated orange peel and mahlepa (here kozunak without this spice is not prepared) messed up everything. During this time Beat well eggs to whiten and sugar dissolved in warm milk. I postoplyam plenty to completely melt the sugar and whisk the eggs until gradually cool to the desired temperature - slightly higher than the body.
To the sifted flour in the middle, slowly add the milk with melted in it sugar, beaten eggs well (as all products need to be warmed slightly) and half of the butter. Knead gently smooth dough. As flour - eye judge if necessary and just over kilogram me needed. Flour varies depending on the size of the eggs. Then without interfering spreading dough mazhem with butter and folded to a bag without interfering more mazhem butter and folded. Do not worry, if not undertaken all the butter, it will happen in souring, then absorb the fat. Finally hitting the countertop 100 times ... and here I kept the tradition ... just as prepared baking tin left to rest and quickly cut into strips with greased hands left lane turning left and right of the right and tangled up, giving form that desire.

So ready kozunaks left in the oven at 40C while ponaduyat coated with the mixture spreads, sprinkled with sugar and ground walnuts, in the case of Peko and upper and lower wire of 150- 160C, as I watched them. Finally, when already to my great surprise and it was blowing a lot and poluopecheni, let the fan to catch and better color. Apply and photos with the result.

* Do kozunaks of 13 years and has something inside me said that besides the conventional way and mnooooogo time, there is another. Well, I hope it is this or our lifetime will learn and remember - * Repetition is the mother of knowledge!*.
* With me were received from rectangular aluminum shapes - 4 small.
* Attention cooks for me technique and preparation, and actual baking, check whether they are baked with a wooden skewer and toast to remain moist and not dry.
* Envy always after cooling with fsunflower fresh oil, sometimes harvesting and in the freezer and then the kozunak smells as if you had just baked.

I prepared the cake in this recipe, as I made it even more lazy - I mixed the flour with the yeast and mahleba separately warmed milk with butter, sugar and orange peel. Eggs smashed cold from the refrigerator. In Beating machines hook dry ingredients, put half the milk, then egg and then the other half milk. Stir only until he began to come off the walls and left to rise. Sumptuous cakes were amazing thread. Souring took about an hour and fifteen minutes. Peko as you describe. I did direct a double dose to 6 large the cake, as I gave 4 and 2 are for us. The recipe is great and my way and very easy;) Thanks a lot, Dianka that share it!

My meal was about 400 g, put 14 g dry yeast and Messina about 15 minutes, until the dough started to become of hives. Then doizmesih hand with another 200-300 grams of flour just until the dough is sticky stop. Folding butter did that as is puff pastry first envelope, slightly raztochih hands of a rectangle, then folded into three rectangle rotated 90 degrees again raztochih hands of a rectangle, and again folded three - about 5 - 6 times. Divided into 3 balls raztochih of fitilche each, put on each length of wick orange marmalade and twisting rope. After plaited braid directly put in the form greased with margarine and let it rest for 40 C. Peko 160 C by using the lower of the oven so. My oven is divided into two by a divider, heated only from below and the fan distributes heat. So the cake prevent burning on top. 27 Apr 2013

Dianka, absolute rights. Besides preparing the cake the traditional, complicated and mysterious, full of symbolic procedures way there easy, everyday way :) He removes the halo of the complex "cake" and makes delicious baked accessible to everyone. The secret of the cake is that to give it time to rise and form large air bubbles. The dough is stretched just wicks and twist or entangled - but it's enough to make thread, because pulling hands stretching bubble. However, if you start squashing and meddle again and again without being aware of where they come from strings, and you risk not to achieve them. I also make cakes without reason, throughout the year and I happened to become without threads. And also any other bakers do thread - muffins, cakes, and one last monkey bread - just to check the veracity of the theory. Dough interfere with the Iron Lady, while up on the hook, not more (more and it can not). And on mahlepa - be careful with the dosage! I some time ago I put something generous and cakes were amazing, at least not me so much I smelled that it ate them! This year I'm going to try to put the ink, but I did not know how to do it. Give savvy how dissolves :) 22 Apr 2013

Sirena, to me took such a spice shop for spices, tea and herbs around City Market. But otherwise: * Mahlab or mahlepi is an aromatic spice from the seeds of varieties of cherry St Lucie Cherry. Cherry stones are broken and extracted seeds are ground. Describe the scent as a combination of bitter almond and cherry. I heard some guy woody fragrance - cinnamon and allspice sort. I tried to mix ground cinnamon and allspice flavor with cherry and almond, pretty much get this flavor. Aroma and is strong in ground state, but developed after baking. Widespread in the Mediterranean and parts of the Middle East. In Greece called μαχλέπι (mahlepi) and is used in sweets and breads rich yeast cakes and biscuits, the Christmas cake and Easter cake Vasilopita Tsoureki. In Cyprus called mehlepi and used in the special Easter pie with curd called φλαούνες (flaounes). In Armenia used to flavor traditional Easter bread - cheoreg. In the Middle East and Asia Minor put in breads and cookies. Gained increasingly popularity in America and Europe, for fine flavor used in oil cakes with fresh fruit. 21 Apr 2013
