This traditional cake for New Year doesn’t need a new recipe. Simply take a sweet yeast dough and perpare it as usual. Let rise until its size has doubled. Then divide into 6-8 portions. Form two rolls from each portion and roll snails from both ends. (see picture) Cross both snail rolls in the middle and place them on a baking sheet. Whisk an egg yolk with a bit milk and spread it on your New Year’s breads. They’re a lucky charm in Rhineland and the four snails symbolize the four seasons of the New Year.
