This sweet and savory bread recipe from Brazil is perfect for a snack or even dessert!
  • 3 ½ ounces of crumbly Gorgonzola cheese
  • 9 ounces of crumbled fresh ricotta
  • 1 cup of chopped walnuts
  • 3 USA Pears
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablet of fresh yeast (15g)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup warm skimmed milk
  • 1/4 cup tea
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups wheat flour

Mix together the Gorgonzola cheese, ricotta and walnuts and set aside.

Peel the pears and cut into cubes.

Drizzle pears with lemon juice and mix with 2 tablespoons of flour.

Mix yeast with sugar until dissolved and add warm milk, oil, eggs and salt.

Work in the flour until the dough is firm. Make a ball with the dough, put in an oiled bowl and leave covered with plastic wrap, for about 30 minutes.

Divide the dough into 3 parts. Open each dough again on a floured rectangular surface.

Distribute the reserved stuffing over the dough and pears into cubes.

Roll up like a roll and close the ends tightly. Trance the three rolls, brush the dough with the reserved egg, and place in a greased baking dish.

Let it grow another 30 minutes. Bake in a medium oven (350º), preheated, for about 40 minutes or until golden. Remove, slice and serve.
