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 sister 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!
just checking the colour…and as you see the egg yolk layer on top makes the beautiful brown colour:
It’s up to you how brown you would like your buns to be:)
I hope you the photos will encourage you to make those buns !
’til the next one,
