Fluffy and tasty ricotta twists with blueberries and crumble on top. They are delicious for breakfast and retain their freshness, you just have to try them out!
Tip: The dough can be made the day before and stored in the fridge.
- 360 g flour
- 2 heaped teaspoons active dry yeast
- 60 g sugar
- 140 ml warm milk
- 100 g butter at room temperature
- 3 farmers eggs
- pinch of salt
- 250 g ricotta
- 300 g blueberries
- 4 tablespoons icing sugar
- 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon cold butter
- 2 tablespoons melted butter to grease
Stir yeast with warm milk and a spoon of sugar, let stand for 5 minutes.
Combine the flour with the remaining sugar, add milk with yeast, eggs and salt. Mix everything together and start to knead. Then bit by bit add the soft butter and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Transfer to a clean bowl, cover and leave for 60 minutes at room temperature.
Then place the dough on a floured surface, knead lightly and wrap in cling film. Chill for an hour or overnight.
Combine the ricotta with icing sugar, vanilla sugar and egg yolk.
Remove the dough from the fridge, place on a floured surface and roll the dough into a rectangle. Spread the filling and sprinkle with blueberries. Fold the dough along the long side to the middle and cover with the second part. Cut into 16 pieces. Twist each piece lengthwise to create a spiral. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and let rise at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
Prepare the crumble, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix using your fingers.
Brush twists top with melted butter and sprinkle with crumble. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 180°C. Enjoy!
Just finished baking these. Very time consuming recipe, stretched over 2 days for me. Used fresh blueberries out of my garden. I followed recipe and used exact measurements as written. My dough came out very wet and I had to add much more flour than this recipe called for. Another thing I would like to mention is sweetness. If you like your baked goods more sweet I would recommend to add more sugar. Even though my blueberries were very sweet the twists came out just the right amount of sweetness for me and I don’t like my baked goods being sweet.
Overall, all I had to change was to add flour and voila – perfect twists! Will make them again to utilize my excessive amount of blueberries.
