250 grams of flour type 1

150 ml whole milk

50 grams of sourdough (or 2 grams of dry beer yeast or 5 grams of fresh beer yeast)

20 grams of orange honey

40 grams of caster sugar

35 grams of neutral pistachio paste (you can do it by pounding the pistachios with a teaspoon of light fruity olive oil)

25 grams cold butter

10 grams of salt

60 grams of whole Bronte pistachios


20 ml whole milk

1 egg yolk


neutral apricot jelly

chopped pistachios


Place in the bowl the planetary (As an Amazon Affiliate, I get paid for qualifying purchases) sifted flour, sugar and salt. Lightly heat the milk (must not exceed 26 degrees, so you have to have a kitchen thermometer, indispensable tool in the kitchen) and dissolve the SOURDOUGH or the FRESH BREWER'S YEAST. Pour the milk over the flour and start kneading at the slightest speed.

If, on the other hand, you use the DRY BREWER'S YEAST, you can put it directly in the mixer, away from salt, and then add the milk at room temperature.

When the flour has incorporated the liquid, add the orange flower honey, work until it is mixed with the dough, combine the pistachio paste and work again. When the dough is smooth and consistent, add the butter in two takes. Continue to work the dough until it is ententent, smooth and homogeneous. Let the dough rest in the kneading machine for 30 minutes covered with food film, then add the whole pistachios and work again briefly in the kneading machine, until the pistachios have been evenly distributed in the dough.

Put the bread dough in a pistachio box in a bowl, cover with food film and refrigerate for at least 12 hours (and maximum 24). After the interval, butter and flour a standard-sized plumcake mold, shape a strand with the dough and place it in the mold.

Cover with food film and let it rise in the oven with the light on until doubled or until the dough has reached the edge of the mold. Timing depends on temperature, from the humidity and strength of your yeast.

Once the bread in the box has doubled in volume, preheat the oven to 180 degrees static and bake for 40 minutes. Once cooked, topple the bread in a box on a wire rack and leave to cool completely. You can serve the bread in pistachio box like this or brush the surface with a little neutral apricot jelly dissolved in a teaspoon of hot water and sprinkle it with pistachio grain. Bon appétit!


THE SUGGESTION: If you want to make the bread rise in a pistachio box faster, you can skip the ripening of the dough in the refrigerator and make the dough rise on the same day. In this case, you have to increase the yeast doses a little bit: 80 grams of sourdough, 5 dried brewer's yeast and 10 fresh. In this case, after 30 minutes rest in the planetary, you have to put the dough directly in the mould and leave to rise in the oven with light until doubling.
