Nutella and Halva Yeast Cake: A 32 cm diameter round cake
A pound of flour
1/4 cup sugar (50 g)
1 tablespoon dry yeast / 1/2 bag fresh yeast (25 g)
3/4 cup (180 g) lukewarm milk
2 eggs M
1/4 cup (50 g) oil
100 g cold and slightly soft butter (cubes)
A small jar of Nutella spread (about 350 grams)
About 100 grams of halva hairs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
In a mixer bowl with a kneading hook place flour, sugar,
and yeast and mix lightly to spread evenly.
Start kneading at medium speed and add the milk and eggs. Process for 2 minutes and then the oil.
When the dough crystallizes and is homogeneous add the butter gradually (literally cube, cube).
Here is the important part, you have to be patient, wait for each cube to assimilate into the dough, and only then continue to the next cube
Until fully immersed, increase the mixer speed to medium.
Put about 8 minutes (no less), the dough is ready when it detaches from the sides moving soft and even, and if you take a small piece and stretch to the sides the dough is not torn.
Transfer the dough to a wide bowl and cover with cling film, puff in a warm and moist place for about an hour and a quarter or in the refrigerator for a long rise (during rising in the refrigerator, after about two hours remove air, cover and return until you want to work with it).
At the end of the swelling, work on a slightly floured surface.
Roll well into a huge rectangle and spread Nutella generously and sprinkle over halva hairs.
Roll into a roll, wrap and refrigerate for about 10 minutes in the freezer.
Slice into 7 cm high slices and arrange on a baking sheet lined with baking paper next to each other at intervals in a circle,
One with the “snail” facing up and one on the side.
Place a ring in the middle.
Cover to swell for another 25 minutes.
Brush with egg and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees turbo for about 25 minutes until the pastry is golden and beautiful.
While the cake is in the oven make a syrup.
Boil sugar and water until completely dissolved and slightly certified.
At the end of baking, brush the cake generously while hot.
enjoy your meal 🙂
