Trdlo manicotti di Bohemia recipe of 07-02-2020
The trdlo or Bohemia sleeves it is a type of brioche from the Czech tradition, which I tasted for the first time in Prague. It is a brioche dough, slightly flavored with cinnamon, which is shaped in the shape of a cannolo. Although the shape might suggest differently, Bavarian manicotti are usually eaten simple, without fillings (and I assure you it's worth it!). The recipe is not particularly complex, the only slightly more complicated part could be shaping the brioches, but if you have a minimum of manual skills, or if you carefully follow my steps with photos, you shouldn't have any difficulty;) particularity of trdlo is that they are usually cooked rolled up on rollers stuck on skewers that turn over the embers. Clearly I didn't have any of this at home, so I made do by inserting the rolling pin into the oven, after having stretched it using 2 baba molds. This trick is necessary so that the brioche does not rest on a baking sheet and does not flatten on one side. In short, this is my version of the very famous Bavaria sleeve, if you decide to try it, let me know what you think!
How to make the trdlo sleeves of Bohemia
Pour the flour, sugar, yeast and orange peel into the bowl of the mixer, then add the egg, milk and butter and knead for at least 10-15 minutes, until the dough is strung, detaching itself from the walls to climb along the hook.
Cover the bowl with a cloth and let it rise for at least 2-3 hours or until doubled in volume.
Once risen, take the dough, deflate it with floured hands and divide it into 4 pieces.
Cut each piece into a thin cord (1-2 cm), about 40 cm long.
Line a rolling pin with aluminum foil and wrap one of the spiral loaves (attaching each spiral to the previous one, so as to form a single brioche at the end) at one of the two ends (before the handle of the rolling pin).
Create a second brioche at the other end, then roll the rolling pin a little on the work surface, so as to flatten the brioche slightly.
Melt the butter and brush the brioches, then sprinkle them with a mix of sugar and cinnamon.
Insert the rolling pin in the oven or, alternatively, place it on side supports, so that it remains suspended and the brioches do not touch any surface.
Then bake in a preheated convection oven at 180 ° C for 15-20 minutes: if your oven does not cook evenly, you will have to turn the brioches during cooking to make them brown evenly.
Once cooked, brush again with melted butter and sprinkle again with cinnamon sugar.
The trdlo manicotti di Bohemia is ready, you just have to serve it.
