  • 1 egg+ egg yolk for brushing the surface

Process of preparing the buns

Process of preparing the buns:

First of all, pour the dried yeast into warm milk together with 10 g of sugar, mix and leave to ferment for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix flour with 10 g of sugar, salt, add the sourdough, egg and room temperature butter, which is cut into smaller pieces. Then mix thoroughly, cover with a clean cloth and leave to rise in a warm place.

After letting the dough rise, transfer it to a floured worktop, cut it into 7 equal parts and shape it into buns. To achieve the perfect shape of the bun, form the dough into the shape of a pancake, place the edges inwards to make a round shape and turn the dough upside down. The folded edges will form the bottom of the bun. Place the shaped buns on a baking pan covered with baking sheet and let aside for 15 more minutes.

Then, brush the surface of the bun with yolk, which we mixed with a little oil. Then sprinkle with poppy seeds and bake until golden brown at 180 ° C for approximately 15-20 minutes.
