Sweet christmasbuns
Print recipe
  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In this case, I used the bread maker. I added the ingredients as described on the supplier’s instructions. I then chose the dough program, which after kneading provides the second rise (when using a bread maker go further by *)
  3. You can of course mix all ingredients by hand or in a bowl with a mixer with dough hooks.
  4. Then mix for 10 to 15 minutes until you have a smooth and elastic dough.
  5. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl.
  6. Place a damp towel over it and cover it with plastic foil.
  7. Let rise for 1 hour.
  8. * For the second rise, place the dough onto the worktop and divide it into 7 pieces.
  9. Make rolls of the buns by grabbing them in your hand and scooping them up.
  10. Let them rest for 20 minutes.
  11. Form them again to a ball and place them on the baking paper in a Christmas tree shape. Let rise for 1 hour in a warm place, under a damp tea towel, covered with plastic foil.
  12. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius after 30 minutes.
  13. Brush the buns with egg at the end of the rising time and sprinkle with pearl sugar.
  14. Put the bread in the oven and let it bake for 20 minutes.
