Step by step recipe

Stage 1
5 min.
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #1 Put into a food-processor bowl: 400 g flour, 15 g yeast, 7 g salt, 50 g Soured dough and 310 ml milk (cold).
Stage 2
10 min.
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #2 Knead on slow speed for 10 minutes.

Note: For the best way to knead, see: A few tips for effective kneading at home.
Stage 3
3 min.
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #3 Stop kneading to add 10 g Vanilla sugar, 50 g caster sugar and 50 g butter.

Knead again, still on slow speed, until the butter and sugar are completely mixed un.
Stage 4
1 hour
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #4 Gather the dough (it is quite normal for this to be very sticky) into a ball and transfer to a clean bowl. Cover with a sheet of plastic. Leave to rest for 1 hour.
Stage 5
2 min.
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #5 After resting, "break" the dough (similar to knocking back with a firmer dough) by stretching it upwards and letting it fall back sharply into the bowl. Do this 2 or 3 times.
Stage 6
4 hours
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #6 Gather the dough into a ball again, cover with plastic film and leave in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Stage 7
3 min.
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #7 The dough will be easier to handle when it is really cold. Tip it onto a floured work surface and press it flat, then shape into a loaf: round, long (like this one), or whatever you prefer.

Place the loaf on a baking sheet.
Stage 8
1 hour 30 min.
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #8 Glaze and leave to rest for 1 hour 30 minutes.
Stage 9
1 min.
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #9 Preheat the oven to 370°F (190°C).

Glaze the loaf again.
Stage 10
40 min.
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #10 Slash the top in a criss-cross pattern (French bakers call this a "polka" cut).
Stage 11
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #11 Bake for about 40 minutes.
Stage 12
Nantes Tourton : Photo of step #12 Leave to cool on a wire rack.

Remarks

You can make a richer tourton by adding chocolate chips or raisins.
