  • 200 ml water
  • 3/4 tbsp honey
  • 1 pack instant yeast
  • 100 ml milk
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 500 g flour
  • apx. 40ml oil (I used extra virgin olive oil)
  • +1 egg for brushing
  • sesame seeds for sprinkling


    1. (A) Mix the water, honey and yeast. Wait for the yeast to rise (around 15-20 minutes should do). (B) In a separate bowl, mix the olive oil, egg and salt.
    2. Mix (A) and (B), add the flour and milk, and bring it together to form a nice smooth dough. Let the dough rise in a warm place (1/2-1h)
    3. Flat out the dough to a square (around 2-3cm or 1 inch thick), cut strings (4-5cm or around 2 inches thick), roll them up as a snail and place them on their side on a baking sheet lined baking tray (You can make any other shapes as well).
    4. Beat the egg and brush top of the snails, sprinkle them with sesame (or any) seeds if you wish, put them in pre-heated oven and bake them while golden brown at 190C/370F.
