Quickly these raisin snails are made. You can freeze immediately after baking great - you always have a fresh snail to the coffee!


  • 450 g wheat flour
  • 1 cube of yeast
  • 140 g of sugar
  • 100 g of butter
  • 1 egg
  • 200 ml of milk
  • 150 g raisins
  • 1 pinch of salt


  1. The flour is poured into a bowl.
  2. The yeast is crumbled and crumbled into the warm milk and then stirred smooth.
  3. In the flour you make a crater, in there comes the yeast milk. Mix well.
  4. Then add the egg and the sugar and the very soft butter and the pinch of salt.
  5. Beat with the wooden spoon until the dough throws bubbles and the arm hurts. Of course you can use the mixer, but in this case I believe in good old handwork.
  6. Then sprinkle the dough with some flour, throw a dishcloth over it and let the dough warm for an hour.
  7. If it has really risen, after about an hour, you knead it vigorously again.
  8. The dough is rolled out to a rectangle. This is sprinkled with raisins. Then you roll up from the longer side, so that a roll is created.
  9. From this role, one cuts off slices, which are placed on a baking tray. There they have to walk another fifteen minutes before being baked at 200 degrees for about 35 minutes.
  10. When they are finished golden brown, take them out of the oven.
  11. Mix 1 tbsp of powdered sugar with 1 tbsp of milk and spread the slices here.
  12. Once again in the oven off, just to dry the glaze, about 5 minutes.

Good Appetite!
