Torta di rose - Roses Cake - BBD # 53

la ricetta in italiano qui 

Always last and always in a hurry but could not miss BBD, the monthly baking event Zorra started 53 weeks ago :-). If you are curious (as I am :-) just give a look to the Archive and enjoy how many different and amazing breads have been baked all over the world in these years!
C Mom Cook is the hostess of the current Bread Baking Day #53. She invited us to bake swirly breads.
This cake is a typical cake from Mantua, it's a sort of sweet bread stuffed with a lovely butter&sugar cream, ideal for breakfast and teatime. But you can change the cream at your pleasuree: any marmalade or jam will be ok as well as any favorite chocolate delight.
The name describes the shape of the cake, the swirls resembling roses of a sweet gourmand garden :-).

Remove the dough from the bowl and roll it out on a lightly floure working surface in a rectangle about 40x60 cm. Spread the cream all over and roll from the long side into a long roll. Arrange and gently stretch the roll a little bit. Then cut into equal pieces of about 4/5cm. (mine were 15), starting first from the extremities.
Place the two ends in the centre of the pan (lined with parchment paper), the other pieces all around.
Cover with a larger bowl and let rise in a warm place until the roses will have leavened and joined together.
Bake at 160° for 30 minutes, cover with aluminium foil if the cake gets too much golden (mine were :-).

Just off the oven, brush the roses with a little honey to look more glossy.
For mini single cakes, use single pudding molds and decrease cooking time, 20 minutes should be enough.
