These days we are on holiday 😀 , we’ll propose you a nice loaf, inspired by the sweet Danube bread, which we’ve just enjoyed lounging in the sun: a soft bread dough with milk enriched with fragrant sesame, poppy and amaranth seeds.
This bread must be eaten strictly by hand, pulling a tiny ball, one after another, so laid down your knives 😉 !
We have used sesame poppy and amaranth seeds but you can change it according to your taste 😀 .
If you try one of the recipes on the blog, take a photo and publish it on Instragam with the hashtag #fratelliaifornelli and tagging our profile @fratelliaifornelli.
Milk and seed Danube Bread
For the dough
- 300 ml of milk
- 350 g of flour 00
- 150 g of Manitoba
- 40 g of soft butter
- 60 g of brown sugar
- 8 g of salt
- 10 g of yeast
- 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons of amaranth seeds
- 2 tablespoons of poppy seeds
For the dough
Slightly warm milk and butter, add the sugar and yeast.
Add flour and salt, knead until you get a soft, pliable dough.
Put the dough into a bowl, cover with a cloth and let rise for one hour.
While waiting for the dough to be riisen, line the bottom of a pan with baking paper.
Divide the dough into 3 part and add 2 tablespoons of seeds in each portion. Knead the dough until the seeds are evenly distributed.
Now divide again each of the three mixtures in 8-9 balls. Arrange all the balls in the pan, leaving a bit of room between them, because they still rise.
Cover the pan with a cloth and let rise another half hour.
Brush the balls with milk and decorate with the seeds used in their mixture.
Bake your Danube for 30-35 minutes at 180 °C.
You can safely use the bread machine to knead and let rise the dough of Danube 🙂
