Mix 120 g of flour, warm water, a tablespoon of sugar and yeast and leave to rise for an hour. After an hour, add eggs and sugar to the composition and mix well. Add the milk, melted butter, essence and finally the flour. It should look like a sticky coconut dough. When the yeast has risen, prepare the chocolate cream: melt the chocolates on the steamer, add the cocoa and then the milk and mix well, finally put the starch and leave it on the steam again until it becomes creamy. Remove from the heat and leave to cool well, then add the butter and mix well for about 5 to 8 minutes. At the end, add the crushed chocolate.

Divide the dough into 2: put half in the tray (the dough will not be easy to spread, but if it is impossible to add flour) Add the chocolate on top, leaving about 5 centimeters away from the edge and the other piece of dough. Press the edges well to stick. Bake at 180 degrees for 40-50 minutes. Whoever wants can glaze it with sugar (powdered sugar mixed with a little water until it becomes liquid), with colored candies or chocolate.

We also kept it in the freezer, it is very good after, it has the consistency of a stuffed gingerbread.

350gr flour
180gr sugar
4 eggs
olive oil
aniseed liqueur
1 sachet of yeast or raising agent for cakes

Making it

Prepare a pasta or dough of flour, sugar, 2 beaten eggs, olive oil (a little) and a couple of drops of aniseed essence or liqueur.

Mix well adding the yeast and work the pasta to form a pliable and smooth pastry.

Take two thirds of the pastry and form this into a round loaf or 'loaf'shape. Roll what remains into a thin strip.

Place an egg at the center of the loaf and hold it in place with two strips of pastry crossed over the egg.

Allow this to rise for 2 to 3 hours.

Once ready, place the bread on a floured oven tray and glaze it with the final beaten egg.

Preparation of ciociara easter pine cone

  • Refresh the mother yeast for 3 consecutive days, using an equal amount of yeast and flour and half in water. I recommend not using sour yeasts!
  • In a large bowl, place the mother yeast together with the warm milk, dissolving it completely.
  • Then add the granulated sugar a little at a time and start kneading vigorously to absorb it from the dough.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, continuing to mix them with the ingredients.
  • Then, add the liqueur, the previously grated orange and lemon zest and the chopped cinnamon with the help of a knife and the vanilla bean seeds.
  • Add the flour little by little and continue to knead, until you get a smooth and homogeneous mixture.
  • Add small amounts of lard at room temperature and work for another 20 minutes, then add the candied cubes.
  • Put everything in the buttered and floured mold, covering the cake with a clean, dry kitchen towel.
  • Leave to rise for 12 hours in the oven off, until it triples in volume.
  • When the pine cone has become well swollen, bake it in the oven without preheating it to 175 ° C for about an hour and fifteen minutes.
  • Once this time has elapsed, do the classic stick test to see if it is cooked and bake it, making it cool inside your mold.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the icing sugar with the icing sugar to which you will add a little lemon juice and water.
  • When the icing is ready, remove the pine cone from its mold and decorate it with freshly made icing sugar and colored confetti.

The ciociara pine cone is a traditional Easter sweet yeast, typical of the areas of lower Lazio. A fragrant Easter cake rich in history.
The ciociara pine cone has ancient origins and from village to village, from family to family, there are many different recipes and versions of this ancient Easter cake.
In Frosinate and lower Lazio, in general, this sweet yeast is served for Easter breakfast, often accompanied by cold cuts and cheeses, especially in the version without candies and raisins. Anise seeds are an ingredient that is used in most Lazio pine cone recipes, but I will not hide that there are also versions without anise seeds.
In short, the world of Lazio's Easter pine cones is very vast and satisfies everyone's tastes a bit !!
I made the ciociara pine cone with brewer's yeast but you, if you prefer, you can replace the yeast based on brewer's yeast with 200 g of mother yeast to the third refreshment.
Run to knead, Easter is just around the corner!
