Pour the milk into a bowl, add the eggs and beat with the whisk, add the crumbled yeast and the teaspoon of sugar, mix again
sift the flours and pour them into the bowl
use the whisk to mix better and incorporate air, add the salt, turn and finally pour the melted butter, stir again for a few moments with the whisk, the dough must be very sticky.
Cut the cold cuts and cheeses into cubes and add them to the mixture, turn with a spoon to incorporate the filling well
Grease and flour the inside of the mold, pour the dough into the pan and let it rise for about 3 hours
or in any case until the dough has reached the edge of the mold. Preheat the oven to 180Â °,
bake the salty baba and cook for about 40 minutes. Let it cool for 5 minutes before removing the baba from the mold.
Cut the slices only when ready to serve.
The salty baba is good both warm and cold, and is still very good the next day.
