I have made this one few weeks ago, it was still warm outside and the yeast was very happy for that, it just kept rising and rising…it almost came out of the form….it is so wonderful, we ate it with butter and an orange marmelade while it was still warm….
1 package yeast (50g fresh yeast)
225g melted butter (still warm)
2 large eggs + 1 egg for egg wash
1 tsp salt
dried fruit or raisins (optional)
Dissolve the yeast in the milk and melted butter, add sugar and eggs.
If you are doing this in a kneading machine, add flour, dried fruit/Raisins and salt gradually until it is a nice and shiny dough.
Sprinkle some flour in the bottom of a bowl and place your round ball of dough in it, sprinkle some flour over it and cover with cloth.
Let it rise for about 1h or until it has doubled in size.
When the dough has risen enough divide it into equal sized balls, in my case it was 8 pcs, this depends on which form you are using and the size of the buns you want to achieve.
Roll each of the 8 peices into a ball, and place it in butter and floured form.
Let it all rise for another 15-20 minutes under a towel somewhere warm. I have a cupboard above my fridge and freezer where it is always blowing warm air from behind, perfect for my dough babies 🙂
Once it has risen enough, brush all of them with egg wash and place them in a pre-heated oven of 190 Degrees Celsius.
Bake them in the middle of the oven for about 30-35 min untl they are nice and golden, and check with a skewer if it comes out dry when you poke them.
Sometimes they tend to burn at the top, but you stop that by covering them with an aluminum foil just when you think that the colour is enough but they still need more baking.
Sprinkle them with icing sugar and serve.
