The initial step to continue with our dessert of spiral of Galician Passover is the preparation of the ferment.

On the 90 ml of milk, we diluted the 15 grams of leavening. It is necessary that milk is to a slightly lukewarm temperature, so that the leavening acts correctly.

Next, it adds to 130 grams of flour of force to milk and leavening and kneads until forming a homogenous ball. In a tray, it covers with 24 film it is transparent and lets rest it h.

He is recommendable to previously beat eggs before adding them to the mass to in the end improve the mixture and that as much does not cost to us to homogenise the ingredients.

We realise the mixture of the ingredients of the spiral of Passover in a foot processor (the Thermomix can serve to us) or a beater of glass.

Whatever the mass is ready, we add the grating of the orange.

We knead the mixture during 10 minutes and when she is well prim, we let rest at least during 5 minutes. With this we fomented that the gluten of the flour works well.

When she is ready, we add to the butter or butter and we return to knead.

The butter or butter usually is added after kneading because its high percentage in fat makes difficult that the gluten works well and that can be kneaded correctly.

When butter or butter has been united well to the mass of spiral of Galician Passover, we formed a mass, we placed it in a pot and we covered with film is transparent letting it rest during 3 hours (more following the temperature of the kitchen) until double its size.

Once we have the mass to the double of its size, we placed it on the worktop. We dust pco of flour exceeds she and we kneaded it with smoothness. We return to let rest it but a brief time of time (10 to 20 minutes).
