  • The kneading must be intense due to the use of strong flour.
  • The texture of the dough should be extremely thin and elastic, almost transparent.
  • Rest the dough for 10' to loosen.
  • After resting the dough, divide the pieces into +/- 300 g, round them and let them rest again for 10 minutes.
  • Grease the work table well with oil or with lard to stretch the ensaimadas.
  • First, give the ensaimada length with a rolling pin greased with butter and then give width using your hands.
  • Once we have stretched them being careful not to break the dough, spread with abundant lard mixed with cinnamon and sugar or just plain lard.
  • If desired, place the filling on the upper end of the ensaimada (angel-hair jam, custard, etc.) and roll the dough on itself.
  • Let the rolled dough rest at least 10' before giving the final shape. Place it on a baking sheet and ferment.
  • Once the final fermentation volume is reached, cook without steam.
