In warm (not hot) milk, mix 1 tsp of sugar and yeast and let it proof. Mix the flours with the remaining sugar and a pinch of salt. Add the egg, butter sliced into thin slices, and proofed yeast to the flour mixture and knead the dough until smooth and non-sticky. You can use a mixer for some help. Once done, cover it with a cloth and let it rise in a warm place for approximately 90 minutes.

Then, transfer it to a floured surface and divide it into 4 equal portions. Roll out each of them into a circle with a diameter of 20 cm. Spread the protein spread on 3 circles and stack them on top of each other, then place the last circle on top without spreading. Using a circular form with a diameter of 20 cm, trim off the excess parts so that the cake is perfectly round. Simply press the form onto the dough from above to cut off the excess parts.

Once prepared, transfer it to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Mark the center with a glass, which must remain intact. Then, evenly cut the remaining part from the center to the edges into 16 equal wedges. Wrap two adjacent wedges around each other, creating a star with 8 intertwined wedges.

Fold the edges of the star slightly inward to make it look neater. In a cup, beat the egg white and brush the entire star with it. Then, place it in the oven preheated to 180°C and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Once baked, let it cool and then dust it with icing sugar.
