Pan co Santi is a traditional sweet bread to eat for the Festa di Ogni Santi on November 2. You can easily re-create this Tuscan specialty at home. It’s delicious with a glass of wine after dinner (English at the bottom).

ITALIAN:

Fa 4 pan co santi.

Ci vogliono:

 700 g di farina

50 g di lievito di birra

2 bicchieri di acqua

1 bicchiere e mezzo di olio extravergine di oliva

4 cucchiai di zucchero

500 g di uvetta

300 g di noci

1 cucchiaio di pepe abbondante e un pizzico di sale. 

Prima di tutto tostate le noci in un padellino con un po’ di olio. Sciogliete il lievito di birra nell’acqua tiepida. In una terrina capiente unite tutti gli ingredienti e aggiungete il lievito per ultimo: amalgamate il tutto formando una grossa palla e lasciatela a lievitare nella terrina per almeno 3 ore, coperta con un panno. Quando l’impasto è lievitato, dividetelo in 4 panetti, incidete una croce su ognuno. Se vuoi, spennellateli con il tuorlo di 1 uovo e mettete in forno per 30-35 minuti a 180 °C.
