Bun in the oven

No… not that one. Literally there were buns in the oven yesterday, and look how amazing they turned out:

Isn’t it worth the apx. 25 minutes actual work? An enjoyably simple recipe, to accompany a nice salad (or really anything) with. I’ll share the recipe, why not, maybe someone has his/her mouth watered by these buns!

“Party bread”


500 g flour
50 g butter
200 ml water
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 pack instant yeast
1 egg

+1 egg on top of the buns

To prepare:
A. mix the water, sugar and yeast. Wait for the yeast to rise (around 15-20 minutes should do)
B. Mix the butter, egg and salt
C. Mix A. and B., add the flour and mix until you have a nice smooth dough (no need to work in any hard)
D. Let the dough rise in a warm place – I usually put it in the bathtub as it has heating from below
E. Form small balls from the dough and place them on a buttered baking tray (or baking paper)
F. Spread the egg on top of the balls, sprinkle them with sesame (or any) seeds if you wish, and let them rise around 30 minutes more
G. Bake them while golden brown on 190°C.

Enjoy while still hot! Though it was even perfect the next morning :).
