The salty Danube is a “rustic” of the Neapolitan tradition, although its origins certainly refer to similar preparations, sweets, Central Europeans: the Buchtel in the first place.

The dough is very similar to that of a brioche pastry, in a salty version, and is subjected to double leavening. The second, made when the balls have already been formed and stuffed, allows the final result of a single “cake” made up of single parts. The yogurt it favors leavening and makes the loaves even softer and fluffier.

You can also prepare salty Danube by choosing delicious fillings different for each single ball, so as to amaze and spoil your guests. The same goes for the sweet Danube that we offer filled with custard but which you can re-elaborate according to your tastes.
