…preparations for yeast dough:
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Crumble ½ cubes of yeast into a tall container, add 75 grams of sugar and 250 milliliters of lukewarm milk and mix together with a whisk or a fork until yeast and sugar have completely dissolved.
Next, put yeast-milk mixture along with 550 grams flour, 75 grams soft butter, 1 egg, 1 sachet vanilla sugar and a pinch of salt to a mixing bowl and knead together with a food processor or blender with dough hook for about 4 – 5 minutes until a smooth (but still slightly sticky) dough.
Then place the dough on the prepared baking sheet and flatten it with your hands to a rectangle of approx. 40cm x 30cm (alternatively roll out with a rolling pin). Place a baking frame around the dough and allow to rest covered with a kitchen towel for about 45 – 60 minutes in a warm place.
Meanwhile, put all the ingredients for the crumble (see list of ingredients above) in a mixing bowl & knead with your hands to form a crumbly dough, then set aside. Pluck currants from stems & place them ready.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (top/bottom heat) in good time. After the resting period, top the yeast dough with plenty of currants and crumbles, then bake for 25 – 30 minutes in the preheated oven until golden brown & crispy.
Take the cake out of the oven after the baking time, allow to cool down almost completely on the baking tray & then cut it into pieces & serve along with a little whipped cream. Have fun baking!
