Step 1

If your time is limited, you can buy frozen Danish pastry in the shop. In this case you will only have to make the cream. But if you have enough time, do try to make the pastry yourself. If you observe all the rules, it will take you 3 days. On the first day remove 40 g butter from the fridge and wait till it is at room temperature; then make the dough. Combine all the ingredients but cold butter in a mixer bowl, i.e. flour, water, milk, yeast, 1 tsp salt, sugar and soft butter. Knead with a hook on a slow speed about 3 minutes. The dough will become soft and homogeneous. Using your hands make a dough disc (not a ball!), wrap in cling film and refrigerate overnight. Cut the cold butter (280 g) in 1 cm slices and make a 15 cm square on a parchment sheet. Cover with another parchment sheet and roll slightly to get a bigger square. Refrigerate till using. Note: if your butter is crumbling or is too soft, you cannot use it. The right butter should be cold and soft, and the fat content should be at least 82%.

Put your dough horizontally and three-fold it: first fold the right third to the centre and then cover them with the left one. Refrigerate for 20 mins. On cooking websites this is often called triple folding.
6. You have to repeat the procedure three times. Each time roll your pastry in a different direction. That means the following steps: roll the dough into a 60x20 cm sheet, three-fold, refrigerate for 20 mins. Remove from the fridge, make a 90° turn, roll into a 60x20 cm sheet again, three-fold, refrigerate for 20 mins. And again, remove from the fridge; make a 90° turn, roll into a 60x20 cm sheet, three-fold but this time leave the pastry in the fridge overnight. Soak the raisins in rum and leave overnight.
