Hefezopf II, spicy

With this spicy Hefezopf I have already excited as a high school graduation seasoned housewives at a birthday party. Maybe a few of you mum users?

Ingredients for the dough

  • 500 g of flour (plain wheat flour is enough)
  • 1/4 l of water
  • 1 pack of dry yeast
  • 50 g vegetable oil
  • 10 g salt
  • As a fillingserve z. Chopped olives, grated carrots, cumin, oregano ...
  • And for painting you need an exciting oil, preferably chili oil


  1. From the dough ingredients you prepare depending on your taste, presence and skill with your hands or with the help of dough hooks, a dough.
  2. First mix the dry ingredients, then add water and oil and work until you have a smooth, tough dough lump in front of you. Leave it in a bowl, covered with a damp cloth, until it has doubled its volume Pi times thumb.
  3. Then knead it well on a floured work surface and divide it into three smaller lumps for strands.
  4. In each of these three strands you knead another filling (with dry stuffing that is much easier, but also, for example, the olives are worth the work!).
  5. Then the strands are braided into a braid. This brazier is sweetened before baking generously with chili oil, then it comes at about 180 ° C for about 20 minutes in the oven (which are the values ​​of my oven - have an eye on it and now and then with a wooden skewer or Testing the knock test for perfection can not hurt!).
  6. Fresh from the heat, you brush it 1-2 times with the chili oil. This then draws nicely into the top layer of dough and gives the whole a nice color and above all a slight sharpness.
