Sometimes coincidence is my friend. After my Belgian Waffles I needed something else for a yummy-breakfast-sidekick. And so I found these French Buns at the baking blog of lovely Karoline Hatt. I hope you are going to love her recipe as much as I do.
1 cube of fresh yeast (25 g)
80 g butter
80 g sugar
200 ml lukewarm milk
1 sachet vanilla sugar
600 g flour
1 pinch of salt
For the filling:
110 g soft butter
70 g sugar
2 Tbsp cinnamon
Knead all together until you have a homogenous dough and let it rest at a warm place until it doubled ist volume. About one our – more or less.
Roll out the dough after the dormant phase and preheat your oven at 360°F/180°C (upper-/lower heat).
For the filling add the soft butter, cinnamon and sugar and stir until you have a paste. Add the paste with a spatula and spread all over the dough. Roll it up and cut into 4cm pieces. Use a cooking spoon and press down so they get their special form.
Put them on to a lined baking tin and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.
I really hope you love that recipe as much as I do – this became a real breakfast superstar right after the first bite.
Go make them 🙂
