  • 75 g Butter
  • 200 ml Lactose-Free milk
  • 1 cube Yeast
  • 500 g Flour
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 2 tbsp Lactose-Free milk
  • Sliced ​​almonds


  • Warm the butter with the milk (approx. 30 degrees; finger warm). Put the flour in a bowl (if you have a food processor, put it in this bowl right away), sprinkle salt and sugar on top. Make a well in the flour. Crumble the yeast into it and add half of the milk. Mix the yeast with the milk lightly with a fork. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.
  • Mix the rest of the milk with 2 eggs, add and knead the whole thing with the food processor (otherwise use a hand mixer with a dough hook). Let rise for another 3 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface 30x40 cm, cut 3 strips lengthways. Loosely weave this into a braid, pinch the ends together well. Place the braid on a baking tray lined with baking paper and let rise for another 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees circulating air.
  • Whisk the egg yolk with the milk and brush the plait with it, sprinkle with the almonds. Bake for about 30 minutes.
