Nutritional values

The juicy wreath contains little fat and is the healthier version of this popular cake thanks to the wholemeal flour. With folic acid, pantothenic acid and biotin, yeast provides beauty vitamins for skin, hair and nails. The mix of vitamins B1, B2, B6 and niacin in the natural raising agent ensures a smooth metabolism, supports muscles and nerves.

Tip: To rise, place the dough near a warm radiator or in the oven at 50 °C, while keeping the door open with a teaspoon as wide as your hand. A loosely laid tea towel protects the yeast dough from draughts and stores heat.
