Cinnamon Twisted Snowflake Bread

The classic sweet bread is good, but if you want to make something more special for the holiday table, I recommend this fluffy, fragrant and fast Snowflake Bread. I really had the pleasure to execute it, it is made so fast, simple and beautiful, unfortunately it has only one minus - you can't stop eating it!

In the original recipe it is made with Nutella, I improvised and made with cinnamon, both very good variants, this with cinnamon seems more flavorful.


White flour
500 g
Cow milk
275 ml
Bakers yeast
25 g
or 10g dry yeast
1 piece
+1 yolk for oil on top
100 g
+ 3 tablespoons for the filling
70 g
melted and cooled, keep 2-3 tablespoons of melted butter for the filling
0.25 tsp
Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp
Cinnamon powder
2 tsp

Step by step


Put flour in a bowl, make a hole in the middle.

Dissolve the yeast with 3-4 tablespoons of warm milk, pour it into the flour pit and leave until it starts to froth.


After this time add the rest of the milk, egg, sugar, melted butter, vanilla essence and salt to the bowl.


Mix the dough with a spoon, it will be a little sticky but do not add flour.


Sprinkle the flour on the table and pass the dough with a spoon.


Knead the dough a little enough to be uniform, helping with the flour.

Then put it back in the bowl and let it rise for 30-40 minutes.


Then cut it into 2 pieces.


From each piece of dough spread a round sheet, about 5-7mm thick.

Spread the baking tray with baking paper, I used the big one for the stove.

Put the first sheet of dough on paper.


Grease this sheet with melted butter.


Then sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon.


With your hands rub the cinnamon well with the sugar and butter.


So that the whole surface is brown.


Cover with the second sheet.


Put 1 glass (glass about 5-7cm in diameter) in the middle of the sheets.

Cut into 4 sheets with a knife or pizza cutter, be sure to cut only to the edges of the glass.


Then each piece is cut into 4 more pieces. In total you have to get 16 slices.


Then we start twisting each slice 3 times - one on the left, the next on the right.


You twist them all and a crown will come out.

Leave it warm until it grows nicely, it almost doubles.


Grease with egg yolk, possibly dissolved with 2 tablespoons of milk.

Place in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes.


When it has browned nicely, take it out and let it cool a bit.

It would be good to remove the paper while the crown is hot, so that the caramelized sugar does not stick to it.

If it still sticks, put it in the oven for another 5 minutes to melt the caramel.


You can garnish with powdered sugar on top, I would still recommend not to do, I find it more beautiful so simply browned.


Here is a fluffy, fragrant and delicious section.

Good appetite!
