Make Up

  1. Mix dough without adding the raisins and nuts. Reserve 2 Kg dough. Add raisins and nuts to the remaining dough and mix on first speed until well incorporated (around 2 minutes).
  2. Divide the 2 Kg of dough into 15 g pieces and round into balls. These balls will become the petals around the bread. Rest for 2 hours and flatten each ball (your can use a tortilla press) and pull a little to make a petal shape.
  3. Proofing baskets: 8 inch diameter round plastic with air circulation, capacity 1 – 1.5 lbs.
  4. On the bottom of each proofing basket, line up in a circle 9 petals and one in the middle (middle petal needs to be round). On each extremity of the bottom end of the petal put a little oil to avoid sticking (1/2 inch). Put on top of this construction the ‘main’ bread dough ball and proof.
  5. Before baking, score just the center ball and leave the bread open. The main bread will raise and the petals will open: Pure Magic!
