Gourmet recipes - “Eights”

I want to introduce you to this attractive gourmet recipe. It is kind of sweet bread with interesting shape. With the products shown below you can produce eight “Eights” :).

Recipe products

500 g white flour + 80 g for additional kneading
3 eggs
8 g dry yeast
50 g sugar
40 g butter
Grated peel of 1 lemon
0.2 g vanilla
150 ml lukewarm fresh milk
1 yolk for smearing
Sugar for sprinkling
Chopped walnuts for sprinkling

Sift 500 g flour. Sprinkle with yeast, sugar, vanilla and lemon peel. Cut the butter above. Beat the eggs and add the milk. Knead the dough using spoon. Put 80 more grams of flour when the rest of the flour is consumed and knead until smooth and soft dough. Cover and leave on heat until doubling in a volume. Knead again and divide into 8 balls. Shape them into wicks with width of around 15-20 cm. Shape into eights and arrange in a tray with baking paper. Cover to rise again. Smear with yolk diluted in vegetable oil when they are ready. Sprinkle lavishly with sugar. Sprinkle with some chopped walnuts. Bake in preheated to 180 degrees Celsius(356 degrees Fahrenheit) oven. They will be ready in around 20-25 minutes.
