Making yeast cake with lingonberries:

Step 1: prepare the dough.

To prepare this wonderful pie, you can take any slightly sweet yeast or puff-yeast dough, it can be made on milk, plain water, kefir and even whey, the site has many interesting recipes for such semi-finished products that you like. Well, if you don’t want to bother, then you can just buy this ingredient in the store, which I did. At home, put the dough in a dry, deep bowl, cover with a kitchen towel and place it near the included stove on 15-20 minutesto rise.

At the same time, using kitchen scissors, we cut out a small circle from baking paper to the diameter of a round non-stick baking dish, put it on the bottom of this dish and turn on the oven for heating 200-210 degrees Celsius.

Step 2: prepare the filling and the mixture for lubrication.

Meanwhile, we break into a deep plate a medium-sized chicken egg and lightly beat it with a table fork until splendid. After that, we sort through lingonberries, while removing different types of litter from the berries, for example, such as small leaves, twigs, or something else. Then we throw it into a colander, rinse thoroughly under trickles of cold running water and leave it in the sink for several minutes or until excess fluid drains. Then lightly dip the berries with paper kitchen towels, fold into a deep bowl, sprinkle with granulated sugar, food potato starch and gently, although slightly kneading, mix everything with a tablespoon to a homogeneous consistency - the filling is ready!

Step 3: form a yeast cake with lingonberries.

Now we crush the tabletop with a tablespoon of flour and spread the raised dough on it. Lightly crush it with clean palms and a metal kitchen spatula, cut into two pieces, one larger, and the second smaller, to be more precise, we leave one part weighing 350 grams, and the second 150 grams. Now we take the portion that is larger, knock it into a bun and roll it into a layer with a thickness of 1 to 1.5 centimeters. We wrap it on a rolling pin, transfer it to the bottom of the prepared form, lay it down with your fingers, so that it lies flat, and lay the berry mixture on the flour base.

The remaining dough is divided into 8-12 equal portions, first roll each into a ball, and then into a long flagellum and spread them on top of the filling in the form of a net. Then we bend the edges of the still raw dessert, forming a relief or simple rim, and proceed to the next, almost final step.

Step 4: bake a cowberry yeast pie.

Using a baking brush, grease the surface of the cake with a beaten chicken egg, let it stand at least at room temperature 15-20, and preferably 30 minutesso that the dough rises once more, and then send it to the preheated oven on the middle rack. Bake the bun for 20-25 minutes, for which she will reach full readiness and will be covered with a beautiful beige-brown crust.
As soon as the cake is browned, we pull the kitchen gloves in our hands, move it to the cutting board, previously laid on the countertop, and completely cool, without removing it. Then we poke pastries with a wide kitchen spatula, transfer it to a large flat dish and offer the whole family to try the miracle.

Step 5: serve the cranberry yeast pie.

After baking, the yeast cake with lingonberries is cooled, then transferred to a more suitable dish, decorated with icing sugar and put on the table as a dessert together with fresh cold or hot drinks, for example, tea, coffee, milk, jelly, kefir, yogurt, hot chocolate or whatever you like. Cook with love and enjoy!

Recipe Tips:

- no starch? No problem! Replace it with two tablespoons of sifted wheat flour;

- If desired, you can prepare a mixed filling for the pie. Suppose you have only one hundred grams of lingonberries, with such a small amount of cake, of course, it will turn out not very saturated, it is better to add one finely chopped apple, banana or sweet pear to these berries;

- at will, the remains of a beaten egg can be poured into the filling.
