Basic Recipe For Bake Goods

image

 

When the weather is like ours was yesterday, broken (lol), my mom and I thought; “why not bake a million things today and have grandma over as well?” So we did! We picked up the ingredients we needed, picked up my grandmother and then we (I) started cooking. Funny how a ‘we’ always turns into ‘I’ or ‘you’. Oh well it’s probably for the best. I’m known to become slightly (a lot) dictatorial when I cook.

We (I) made pineapple cupcakes, sausage rolls, marzipan and apple rolls, cinnamon rolls and buns with raisins. It took about 3 hours and holy shit we ended up with so much food. The cinnamon rolls are my favorites, they are so delicious! The best part is that you can use the same batter for the buns as well as the cinnamon rolls so it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t share them with you!

As the recipe is a basic batter you can use it for lots of things like sausage rolls, small pizza buns, use it for home made burgers or add chocolate, raisin, cinnamon or whatever you feel like. The sky is the limit!

You need (for about 20 pcs)

500 grams wheat/white flour 

75 grams of butter

50 grams of fresh yeast

1 egg

About 2,5 dl/1 cup of milk (lukewarm)

1 tbsp (25 grams) of sugar

1  tsp salt


How to do

1. Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm milk

2. Add the flour and the other ingredients. Important! If you want to add anything like chocolate or whatever you have to add it before you add the flour.

3. Mix in your kitchen aid for a couple of minutes or by hand until the dough is smooth and non sticky. (If very sticky add a tiny bit of flour)

4. Separate the dough into small buns and set them to rest for a couple of minutes. Working with the dough is easier if you have a little flour on the table and on your hands but be careful not to use too much or else the dough will become to dry.

5. Put on to a baking tray and cover them with a wet and clean cloth and put to side in a warm place until double the size and your oven has preheated to 220°C (428°F)

6. Brush the buns with whipped egg (gives them a nice color in the oven. You can use water instead if you like)

7. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes until cooked and golden.
