I was looking forward to a nice spring weekend but this is what I saw when I woke up in the morning. We already had such nice weather with flowers starting to bloom. Now we’re expecting 10 cm of snow.
Time for some comfort breakfast! These buns don’t take much time and most importantly: they don’t leave a huge mess in the kitchen. Nothing worse than having to clean up the whole place at 8 in the morning.
Ingredients (makes 8 buns)
500 g flour (I used normal white flour)
300 ml lukewarm water
1 package of dry yeast
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp salt
seeds for the topping
Line a tray with parchment paper.
Mix the honey with the yeast and mix into the lukewarm water. Add it with the salt to the flour and make a dough. It should not be sticky once everything is mixed well. Cut the dough into 8 pieces, roll out buns and let them sit on the tray for 30 minutes. If you want to you can cut a cross into the top before you let them rest. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Brush the buns with milk and sprinkle sesame, sunflower or pumpkin seeds on top. Bake them for around 20-25 minutes.
Enjoy sweet or salty. We still had some self made marmalade and onion jam.
