So yesterday I had an exam, so I came back home tired. I fell asleep having this idea of baking, but no energy at all. Half an hour later, I find myself in the kitchen getting dirty!
I took me some time to make these buns, but they worthwhile.
The ingredients are the following:
500 gr plain flour
1 cup of sugar
50 gr butter
300 ml milk
a pinch of salt
2 tbsp of cinnamon
1 cup raisins
7 gr dry yeast
1 big apple chopped
1 beaten egg
Some additional flour for dusting will be needed.
This is how it is done:
Starting up by heating up the milk.
When the temperature rises, add the butter let them cool down. When it reaches room temperature, add the yeast and stir until it is dissolved.
Peel off the skin of three really small apples or a big one.
Next step is adding all of the ingredients in a bowl.
The dough has to be kneaded,until it becomes smooth and elastic. Then it has to be left to rest until doubles. A good way to promote this procedure is, to put the bowl in the oven while setting the temperature around 30 degrees or lower. This will take about one hour.
When it is ready, divide the dough into small even pieces.
For this a floury surface will be needed.
After rolling them into a small ball, place them on a baking tray. This will be the second time the buns will be resting. For that reason, they have to be arranged in a way that some space are left between them. After one hour or so the buns are ready to be baked.
Preheat the oven to 220 C. Bake the buns for 20-25 minutes or until they become brown.
As a final step, some glaze can be used. For that, preheat some apricot or orange jam. Pour some of the warm jam over the buns and BANG!
the buns are ready!
