  • 250 g Flour
  • 50 g Sugar
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 0,5 tsp Grated orange peel
  • 3 tbsp Peeled hemp seeds
  • Alternatively, chopped nuts or almonds
  • 100 ml Milk lukewarm
  • 0,5 Yeast cubes
  • 40 g Butter
  • Milk
  • 1 packet Bourbon vanilla flavor


  • Mix the flour, sugar, salt, orange peel and hemp seeds.
  • Dissolve the yeast in the milk, then add the butter and dissolve as well. Add this liquid and the vanilla flavor to the dry ingredients and knead everything thoroughly.
  • Now cover and leave in a warm place (e.g. on the heater) for about 1 hour until the volume has roughly doubled.
  • Then knead again and divide equally sized parts. Roll these 30-35cm long strands. Make a braid from the strands. Place this on a baking sheet.
  • Let rise for another 30-40 minutes. Then brush with milk.
  • Wet all sides (+ bottom) of the oven with a flower sprayer or similar.
  • Put in the baking tray with the braid and bake at 180 ° C for about 25-30 minutes.
