Ingredients:

  • Pre-dough:
  • Dough:
    • 100 ml of milk
    • 15 g of fresh yeast
    • 300 g of flour
    • 30 g of sugar
    • 1 teaspoon ground cloves or cinnamon
    • 1 egg
    • A pinch of salt
    • 50 g butter, room temperature
  • Filling:
    • 50 g butter, room temperature
    • 70 g brown sugar
    • 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • Icing:
    • 35 g butter, room temperature
    • 70 g cream cheese
    • 70g powdered sugar
    • 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
    • 30 ml of heavy cream
  1. Start by preparing the pre-dough in a small saucepan by whisking 15g of flour and 70ml of milk over medium heat until thickened. Let it cool in a mixing bowl.
  2. Heat 100 ml of milk in the same saucepan and dissolve the fresh yeast over low heat.
  3. Add the yeast mixture and the remaining dough ingredients, except the butter, to the mixer bowl. Knead with a dough hook at medium speed for 15 minutes.
  4. Gradually add the butter to the dough and continue to knead for another 5 minutes.
  5. Form the dough into a ball and place it in a lightly greased bowl. Cover and let rise for 60 minutes.
  6. Prepare the filling and icing and set aside at room temperature.
  7. Once the dough has risen, knead it on a floured surface and roll it out into a rectangle measuring 35 x 25 cm. Spread the filling evenly over the dough and roll it up on the short side.
  8. Cut the roll into 6 to 8 pieces using a thread, flatten them slightly and place them in a lined baking dish. Let them rise covered for another 45 minutes.
  9. Preheat the oven to 200°C (392°F) and bake the buns for 22 minutes.
