Heat the milk a little (so that it is slightly warm).

I pour warm water into a bowl, put a container with dough into it.

The dough should double in size (this will take about 30 minutes).

Grind the yolks with sugar and vanilla sugar.

Beat the whites with a pinch of salt until foam.

Add yolks to the matched dough.

Add the remaining flour (you may need a little more or less flour, it depends on the quality of the flour).
Knead the dough.
The dough must be kneaded well, it should not be steep and should not stick to your hands.

Put the dough in a warm place again.
Let the dough rise well (this will take 50-60 minutes).

Soak raisins in warm water for 10-15 minutes.

Cover with cling film or towel.

Let the dough rise again already in shape.
Put in an oven preheated to 100 degrees.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Then increase the temperature to 180 degrees.
Bake until tender (my cake 11 cm high and 17 cm wide was baked for 35 minutes, 10 minutes at 100 degrees and 25 at 180 degrees).
To check the readiness of the cake, pierce it with a match (or a toothpick), if it is dry, the cake is ready.
