Ahhhhh…. another one of “those” weekends. I was baking and cooking so doing the things which relax me the most. This recipe appeared on the blog before but I guess it wasn’t too clear. So showing it once more focusing only on one kind of filling and one shape :).  The idea came from here. Originally they were made also with blueberries but I wanted only cheese. Enjoy!

Ingredients (make about 12-15 buns):

450 g flour

80 g sugar (preferably icing sugar)

2 tsp dry yeast (8g) or 16 g fresh yeast

1 tsp salt

1 large, beaten egg

70 g soft butter

1 and 1/8 cup butter milk, room temperature


200 g cream cheese (I used quark, can be also ricotta)

3 tbsp honey

2-3 tbsp vanilla sugar (I used 1 tbsp of vanilla patè)

Mix well all the ingredients. Set aside.

All the dough ingredients mix well in a bowl. Knead smooth, elastic dough (it can be a little sticky). Sprinkle with flour and set aside to rise (it should double in size).

Knead a little more. Roll into 30×35 cm rectangle. Spread the filling on it. Roll like here and divide in 12-16 pieces. Place them on a baking tray lined with paper 1 cm apart. Set aside again for 60 minutes.

Bake at 190ºC around 20-30 minutes till they get brownish.

For icing (when the buns are still warm): 2 tbsp of icing sugar, 1 tbsp of hot water

Additional info: I also brushed the buns before baking with beaten egg.

For bread machine owners:

Put the ingredients in order: liquid parts, dry part, yeast. Use the program with at least 10 minutes of kneading cycle and around 1 to 1.5 hours of rising. After that take the dough out and follow the recipe above.
