My own King Cake: Spices Bread

Speces Bread

Though we don´t have family tradition to celebrate on the feast of the Three Kings, I´d like to participate Zorra of 1x ümruhren bitte invitation-Make Your Own King Cake. Today is the last day of submision. I tried to make the bread using a recipe from mbak Fenty, with slighly modification as usual :D. Thanks to Zorra who gives step by step how to fill the filling. My bread turn out not really good, anyway.. I love the taste of spices in the bread. Next time, I´ll try again!

250 g flour type 550 *( me: 500 g flour type 550)
250 g flour type 1050 *(I omitted this)
1 yeast/hefe

150 ml
warmed milk
2 eggs 50 g sugar50 g butter, melted
1 tsp salt
, 1 tsp cinnamon powder
12 cardamoms, grinded then sifted
2 tsp vanillie sugar
200 g ground hazelnuts, 150 g sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon powder,
1 egg, 50 g butter, melted

* according to Wikipedia: German flour type numbers (Mehltype) indicate the amount of ash (measured in milligrams) obtained from 100 g of the dry mass of this flour. Standard wheat flours (defined in DIN 10355) range from type 405 for normal white wheat flour for baking, to strong bread flour types 550, 650, 812, and the darker types 1050 and 1600 for wholegrain breads.

Spices Bread 2

Guess, who got the trinket? my hubby :D. I also made braided bread from the similar recipe.


directions: Dissolve yeast into lukewarm milk. Place a half amount of flour, eggs, yeast mixture, butter, salt, sugar, spices (ground cardamoms and cinnamon) into a food processor, mix well. Gradually, add the rest of flour. Turn the dough onto lightly floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic. Cover the dough and stand in warm place until double in bulk for about 1 hour. Divide the dough into two, use a rolling pin to roll the dough in 30 cm length. Fill with Hazelnuts filling. Brush with the beaten egg yolk and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in preheat oven at 180 °C for about 20-30 minutes.
