Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a good weekend!

So today, for a good start of the new week, I have for you delicious buns, that my 4sister Ania baked not so long ago and I begged her to share the recipe with you. I feel that this will not be the last time I post Ania’s ”delicious creations” so I am creating a folder called  Ania’s cooking spot! I hope that your comments will encourage her to create her own blog , so she could see how much fun it is:)

Soo, Ania’s recipe: Buns (makes 10)

 

– 160ml milk

– 2tsp caster sugar

– 1 pinch salt

– 1 egg

– 310g sifted self-raising flour

– 2tbsp unsalted butter, melted

– 7g fast action dried yeast

For the cheese filling:

– 400g curd cheese

– 85g powdered sugar

– 1tsp vanilla extract

– 1 yolk

– 4tsp unsalted butter, melted

Combine all ingredients together.

For the walnut filling:

– 200g walnuts, finely ground

– 100g brown sugar

– 80g heavy cream

– 1tbsp rum

– ½tsp cinnamon

To make the dough put the flour in a mixing bowl, then add all the rest of the ingredients and mix in. Use your hands to combine the ingredients. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for about 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. It is a fun, messy bit 🙂 but also pretty hard work!

Put the dough into a lightly floured/oiled bowl and cover with a clean tea towel or cling film. Leave it to rise for about 1 hour in a warm place, it should double in size.

Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and divide it into 10 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball then using rolling-pin roll the ball out into a circle. Brush all over with the melted butter. Sprinkle the filling over the circle’s surface and roll it up into a tight cylinder. Then, each of them cut in the middle leaving about ¼ uncut at each ends.

The ends fold from outside to the centre.

Place your buns onto baking sheet, leaving a little space between each of them. Cover with a tea towel and set aside to rise for 15-20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 190ºC and bake the buns for 20-25 minutes, or until risen and golden-brown.

Tip: Just before putting them in the oven, you have to brush each of the bun with beaten egg. That will give them golden-brown look!

Buns going to the owen-I cannot have enough of the incredibly beautiful shapes…..just look at the layers!
