Mallorcan Ensaimada -- Spanish Snail Shaped Bread Rolls


This is going to be a short sweet picture post, featuring Mallorcan Ensaimades (or ensaymadas) -- little snail shaped bread rolls. I saw these in one of my international bread cookbooks and thought the kids would love them, and of course they did.

It starts with a lightly sweetened yeast dough recipe that you cut into even sized chunks, which you then roll out into thin ropes, like making pretzels.


Coil the ropes into spiral snail shapes...


Let rise a second time and bake until golden brown and sprinkle the tops with powdered sugar...




Add a raisin for the eye, or leave plain...


Perfect split in half and served with butter and lingonberry jam :)
