Ingredients for about 8 buns/rolls:

  • 300 grams of flour
  • ½ cube of yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 25 grams of butter
  • 125 milliliters of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • Flour for the work surface
  • 1 tablespoon of condensed milk or cream

Kitchen Helper/Gadgets:

  • 1 vessel for mixing the yeast milk mixture
  • 1 whisk or a fork to stir
  • 1 bowl
  • Mixer/food processor
  • Possibly a kitchen balance
  • 1 knife or scissors for cutting the rolls
  • 1 kitchen towel
  • Baking tray + greaseproof paper
  • 1 brush for brushing the buns/rolls



Crumble yeast in a large vessel. Add 125 milliliters of lukewarm milk and a heaping teaspoon of sugar & stir with a whisk until sugar and yeast have dissolved.

…for the bun dough:

Combine 300 grams of flour, 25 grams of butter, 1 egg, ½ teaspoon of salt and the yeast-milk-mixture into a mixing bowl. Knead with the help of a food processor or your hands about 5 – 10 minutes until the dough is smooth. Give the dough on a floured working surface and form into a ball. Let stand covered with a kitchen towel for about 30 – 45 minutes.

…for the sunday rolls/buns:

Knead the dough again after resting time, then form into a thick roll and cut into 8 pieces of dough (each 60 – 70 grams). Form all pieces of dough into balls and place on a lined baking tray. Cover the dough balls with a kitchen towel and let stand for another 30 – 45 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees (top/bottom heat) on time. Cut a cross into the rolls top after the resting period using a sharp knife or scissors. Whisk up 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of condensed milk or cream and brush the rolls all around with the egg mixture. Bake the buns in the preheated oven for about 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown and crispy.

Bon Appetite & enjoy baking!
