Tricks for demented cupcakes
Warm mixing bowl
Before you start kneading the dough, rinse the bowl with hot water and wipe it thoroughly. A warm bowl will create ideal conditions for the dough to rise.
Use free-range eggs
Choose country eggs to ensure the fluffiness and yellow color of the dough. Additionally, add salt to the yolks, use corn-fed chicken eggs, or add saffron dissolved in milk to the dough to give it a vibrant yellow color.
Heat milk for mayo
Heat the milk for the sourdough a little but avoid heat to ensure proper fermentation.
What to add to egg whites?
Add a little lemon juice and salt to the egg whites for a faster and more effective meringue-like batter.
Fresh and quality ingredients
The quality of the ingredients is essential to get a perfect cozonac.
Prepare the nuts
To make the filling, add walnuts to boiling milk to remove the bitter taste.
Sift flour before kneading to ensure uniformity and quality of the dough.
Don’t overdo the kneading time; On average, 20 minutes is enough. The dough should be elastic and come off easily in your hands.
