These delicious little Swedish buns have made a lot of people happy this week! So I thought it was only fair for me to share the recipe here for you guys to spread the love too 😊 You can watch my bun plaiting technique on my reels here.
These are perfect with a cup of tea or coffee to bring a little Swedish Fika to your day!
Makes 9 buns
- 500g of bread flour
- 15g of instant yeast
- 85g of salted butter
- 100g of sugar
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 1 egg
- 230ml of whole milk
- Nutella to fill (or any spread you have at home!)
1* Pour the milk into a pan and add the cubed butter. Gently warm and melt the butter.
2* In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the flour, salt, sugar and yeast. Add the hook attachement and give it a little whisk. Then gently pour in the milk and butter and the egg all together.
3* Knead the dough with the hook for 5 minutes on medium speed then check it. If it is still sticky, add 1 tbsp of flour and continue to mix for another few minutes. The dough is done when it is elastic and doesn’t stick to the bowl anymore.
4* Cover and leave to rise for 1h to 2h (you can put a bowl of boiling water in your cold /off oven and leave it there to rise).
5* Flour your worktop, roll out to a large rectangle (50cm by 25cm) and cover half of it with a thin layer of Nutella. Fold in two.
6* Cut 5cm strips and then cut each in 3 but keeping an attachment on the top. Plait the dough and roll it around your fingers to make the bun. Place inside a cupcake tin.
7* Cover and leave to rise for another hour until it has puffed up. Brush with some egg wash or milk before baking.
8* Bake at 180C fan oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
