  • milk - 350 ml

  • dry yeast - 14 g

  • eggs - 4 pcs.

    + 2 yolks

  • raisins - 250 g


1. In a small but deep bowl, mix 4 tablespoons of flour, dry yeast, a tablespoon of sugar and a little warm milk.

Mix with a wooden spoon, cover the dough with cling film.

Put it in a warm place without drafts, it can be a closet, or the oven is turned off.

2. In a separate bowl, mix 4 eggs, 2 yolks, sugar, salt and beat thoroughly with a mixer (at high speed) until a high white mass.

3. Pour the remaining flour, eggs with sugar, steam, melted butter, vanilla into another bowl and mix everything well with a spoon.

When the dough becomes sticky, start kneading with your hands on the table.

4. Transfer the dough to a deep bowl, cover with cling film and leave to rise for about 1-1.5 hours.

5. Pour boiling water over the raisins, put them in a colander and dry them with a paper towel.

6. When the time has passed and the dough has risen, put it on the table, pour dried raisins in the center and knead the dough well to evenly distribute the dried fruits.

7. Divide your dough into pieces.

Their size will depend on the size of the form.

The dough should fill the mold by a third.

Make sure that there are no raisins on top, because they will burn during baking.

8. When the dough is divided into forms, cover them with food film and put them in a warm place without drafts for 15 minutes.

9. Bake the pastries in an oven heated to 180 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
