Ensaymada

Ingridients :

3 1/2 to 4 teaspoonfuls of yeast
1/3 cup of lukewarm water
1 1/2 teaspoonfuls of white sugar
1/2 cup diluted evaporated milk or undiluted whole milk
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
3 egg yolks
2 1/2 to 3 cups unsifted all-purpose flour (after measuring sift flour)
grated mild white or yellow cheese, white sugar, softened butter for top or filling

dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water and 1 1/2 teaspoonful of white sugar.

mix, then set aside until bubbly.

mix everything together until well incorporated and smooth.
transfer dough into a greased bowl, let rise for one hour, then form into a log,

flatten out and fill with cheese and butter (optional), or just coil into a snail shape in a greased pan.

if you are making individual cakes, divide the dough in equal pieces, roll into logs and coil or knot and place in greased muffin tins.

let rise for another hour, then brush with butter and bake in a preheated 300˚F oven for 25 minutes or until lightly brown.

cool completely, slather with butter, dust with sugar and top with grated cheese, if desired.
