raw egg (for brushing)
orange zest powder
sugar (for sprinkling)
colored candies for decorating
1The first step is to dilute the yeast with a little water, and let stand, then grate the rind of two oranges, which will serve to flavor the dough (some uses of lemon), and reserve.
2In a bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar and a little salt, at least 4 or 5 minutes until caught off-white, this will mean that absorbed air, so the batter will be more fluffy., And then leaving to beat the oil and add the milk and then the flour and mix it all started with the hand, add the yeast and orange zest and continue mixing until dough is because at this time we spent at the table and knead at least during 5 minutes using the system of kneading bread.
3After this period of time left the dough at least 2 hours at room temperature, covered with a cloth or plastic wrap to continue their course of yeast dough and inflate. For the development of the figure of the monkey, in this case I chose how to braid, so I teach you how to do so you can see how simple it is and it is nice once finished. After the dough rested, take it off the bowl, put it on the bench and bend with the roller in two or three layers, to eliminate the occurrence of gas inside.
4Then we take small balls of dough about 100 grams each, these stretch a bit and the three cords formed as represents the image, will join the ends and started braiding cords interlacing mass (follow the example photo) . When you reach the end, leaving a gap only in one end, it will post the egg where the monkey, the other end to seal it stays rounded tip.
5Then, put the braids of dough on a baking sheet and pincelamos each piece with beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar, then introduce them into the furnace we will have preheated to heat up and down to 170 ° C for 20-25 minutes. After passing this time, we get the monkeys of the oven, let cool a few minutes and brush with a little jelly, then sprinkle with anisetes the color, and we let the dough from sticking, thus giving a colorful attractive and sweet for children and adults.
