Traditional Easter Mona

A classic Easter cake, without frills or figures, except for the typical feathers and chicks. Normally they are served accompanied by a boiled egg, and we are going to serve it with a boiled egg and with a chocolate egg.

Ingredients

  • 2 boiled eggs
  • 1 egg to paint the monkey
  • cane sugar
  • Water
  • chocolate eggs
  • Feathers and chicks

For the preference:

  • 50 g of strong flour
  • 5g fresh yeast
  • 30 ml of warm water

For the mass:

  • 200 g of strong flour
  • 5g fresh yeast
  • the preferment
  • 2 eggs M
  • 70g brown sugar
  • 40 ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • Zest of an orange
  • a pinch of salt

Preparation

  1. The first thing we are going to prepare is the preferment. To do this, undo the fresh yeast in a jar with warm water. Stir with a fork until completely dissolved. We incorporate the flour and mix, it is not necessary to knead much, simply that both ingredients are well integrated. We shape it into a ball and let it rest for 30 minutes submerged in warm water until the ball floats.
  2. Let's go now with the dough of our traditional mona. In a bowl, pour the flour. Crumble and add the fresh yeast. We incorporate the preference.
  3. Add the slightly beaten eggs, together with the sugar, the orange zest, the extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt and knead with the dough hook at medium-low speed until all the ingredients are integrated and the dough is loose. of the walls.
  4. We will have a sticky dough, but it is normal.
  5. Spray a bowl with a splash of olive oil, put the dough in this second bowl and form a ball with it. Cover with a clean cloth or plastic wrap and let stand until doubled in volume, about an hour and a half.
  6. After the resting time, we make two equal parts.
  7. Paint the work surface with a little oil. With these quantities we are going to get two small monkeys, for approximately three people each.
  8. As a template we are going to use a couple of saucepans bottoms of the 16cm Efficient collection that, apart from being able to cook with them, are great as a mold for making biscuits and bread.
  9. Make a couple of balls and put them in the pans, we do not need to add any fat, its non-stick surface is ideal and nothing sticks without the need to butter or grease.
  10. We make a hole in the center and place a boiled egg in the center of each mona. Brush with beaten egg and let stand for 1 hour in a warm place.
  11. Preheat the oven to 175ºC option up-down.
  12. Put the sugar in a bowl and add a few drops of water, mix with your fingers and see how the sugar becomes lumps. We booked.
  13. We repaint our monkeys with beaten egg and put the wet sugar that we had reserved on top.
  14. We bake for 15 minutes.
  15. If we want to put chocolate eggs we have to make sure that the monkeys are completely cold.
