Cinnamon Snails

Well it is not that I have not been cooking recently, but I had no time for posting. Besides next week there is a big challenge waiting for me...but about that I am going to post later. When I moved to Switzerland I was surprised that they only sell nut snails here. Being a Hungarian I am spoiled with the huge selection of snails: cocoa, coconut, chocolate, cinnamon and so on. As cinnamon is my all time favourite spice that is why I baked my "snails" with a cinnamon-sugar filling instead of the popular cocoa snail. The recipe is from Mille from Kool Kat's Kitchen Adventures.

6 and a half tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
80 g butter
1 egg

zest of 1 orange
450 g flour (+/- 10%)
20 g fresh yeast

300 ml milk
6 tablespoon sugar and 1,5 teaspoon cinnamon

In a bowl dissolve yeast in lukewarm milk. Add sugar, salt, butter and orange zest. Stir in the slightly beatn egg and add flour spoon by spoon. Knead with a help of a machine for about 10 minutes. You should get a medium soft dough. Place it in an oiled bowl and let it raise until it doubles its size, about 2 hours.
Oil a working surface and roll out dough to a rectangle. Add cinnamon-sugar and roll it up.

Slice 1,5-2 cm thick snails and let it raise for another 1 and a half hour. After you either can bake it immediately or put it into the fridge and bake for breakfast: on 180°C for 20-25 minutes.
