Add the soft butter in three times and continue to work the dough until it tends to detach itself from the walls of the kneading machine.

Add the remaining butter, which has been melted, and delicately incorporate the sultanas, walnuts, figs and candied fruit.

Make sure that the temperature of the dough is 26-28°C.

Leave the dough in a rising room at 28-30°C for about 90 minutes.

Divide it into pieces of the required size, roll up and place on sheets or boards and leave to rest for another 15 minutes.
