Yuuum I got another yeast recipe under my belt (or in my belly).
This is pretty simple in components but very satisfying in flavor. It's a simple yest dough that is shaped into little buns that are dipped in melted butter and rolled in a sugar mixture. They were supposed to come out round but because I didn't pack them tightly in a pan they oozed a little out of shape, but I didn't mind that. You could place them in one layer or on top of each other in a smaller pan.
Before and after rising
Here you can see the major oozing that occurred during the second rise.
Sugar Yeast Buns:
2 cups flour
1 tbsp sugar
2 tsp (7 gr) dry yeast
¾ cup milk
½ tsp salt
50 gr melted butter
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ chopped topping (nuts, raisins)
Sift flour into mixing bowl. Add sugar and yeast, mix and make a hollow in the middle of the flour mixture. Into it pour the milk and (with dough hook attachment) knead slowly at first then upper the speed to medium, add salt and knead for about 4 minutes.
Take dough out of bowl, shape into smooth ball and place in buttered bowl to rise about an hour (until double in size).
Pour melted butter in a deep bowl. In a deep plate place sugar, cinnamon and topping.
Knead dough gently to bring it back to its original size, pinch of same sized pieces (recipe said 14, I did 9) and roll each into a smooth ball, dip in melted butter and roll in sugar mixture, place in baking pan, either next to each other or on top of each other, whatever you prefer or kind of pan you have. Pour over the buns the remaining butter and sugar. Let rise for another hour.
Bake buns in 200C preheated oven for 40 minutes until golden brown.
