This is such a cute recipe for homemade buns. It seems complicated at first but once you get the hang of it, it’s smooth sailing.
Homemade buns are the best. When the kids come home they’re greeted by the wonderful aroma of freshly baked golden buns. I’m willing to make these every day, just for the squeals of delight and the hugs I get from my kids.
They freeze wonderfully so make a large quantity, so you can enjoy them whenever a craving hits.
A super yummy recipe that also looks really impressive.
Makes 25 buns
1/2 kilo flour (3.5 cups + 1 Tbsp)
11 grams dry yeast (1 Tbsp)
or 25 grams fresh yeast
80 ml oil (1/3 cup)
1 heaped Tbsp sugar
1 level Tbsp salt
230 ml lukewarm water (a little less than 1 cup)
1 Tbsp honey
1. Process the ingredients into a smooth and soft dough. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover. Let rise 1.5-2 hours or until doubled in size.
2. Divide the dough into 25 pieces:
There are two options: Roll each piece out into a small circle and pinch into a ball and then let rise 10-15 minutesOR roll each piece out into an ellipse without making a ball.
3. Make a 20 cm long rectangle-square and trim off excess dough. Cut strips of the dough at the bottom up to half the length of the rectangle and then start rolling downward from the non-cut part.
4. Let rise for around 15 minutes and preheat an oven to 180°C.
5. Beat an egg with the honey and brush the buns with it. Bake for around 15 minutes or until golden.
