I've got another healthy and delcious recipe for you. Buns are very popular in Poland and they are usally sevred as a dessert with sweet fillings like white cheese, jam, fruits or custard.
You can buy them in any Polish shops but in my opinion nothing reflects the taste of handmade, warm and freshly taken out from the oven buns. To make them you need the key ingrendiat which is yeast, it makes the pastry grow nice and plump. I've got this easy recipe with simple ingreadiants so if you're intersented just keep reading.
IngrediantsFor the pastry
-2 cups of flour
-5 decagram of yeast
-4 tablespoons of butter
-3 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
-4 tablespoons of sugar
-Pinch of salt
-1/2 cup of milk
Prepare all of the ingreadiants, make sure you have everything :)
Cruble the yeast and add some white or brown sugar.
Warm up the milk, make sure it's not too hot. Pour it in the yeast and stir precisley to make sure that the yeast has melted and there are no lumps.
Heat the oven for 10 minutes and then turn it off and close it to trap the heat. Pour the mixture into a large bowl, cover it with a towel and place it in the warm oven. Leave it for about 10 minutes to grow
Get all dry ingreadiants:
flower, vanilla sugar, 4 tablespoons of sugar, pinch of salt
Then you can add in the wet ingreadiants:
egg and melted butter
Mix it well and then take out the yeast and add it to the rest, if the pastery is too wet in this step you can ass some flour and knead it.
Sprinkle some flower on your working area and roll out the pastery with a rolling pin
Roll out the pastery
Prepare your filling.
To make a white cheese filling you need to blend the cheese with 1 egg yolk, sugar and you can add some vanilla but that depends on personal preference.
Spread the cheese on the pastery evenly with a table spoon or a spatula.
You can put small pieces of fruit, rasins or spices on the cheese it depends on how you want to personalize it :)
Fold the pastery and cut it into rectangles I usally get 8 pieces
Grease the baking tray with some butter and carefully place your buns to prepare them for baking.
You can also twist the buns just as you can see in the picture, some of my buns were twisted once and some twice. I personally thing that the ones that were twisted twice look better :)
Apply some egg white on the top of the buns to make them nice and gold when you take them out of the oven.
Place them in the oven at 180°C and bake for 20-30 minutes.
When you take them out they might be stuck together cause the pastery could still grow a lot so it's good to use a big tray. It's not a big problem if you have a small one though, you can simply seperate them with a knife afterwords.
You can serve them with frosting, powdered surar, fruit, jam, nuts or anything you want!
