Czech home-made buns

Baking General Recipes

No one can resist the smell of home-made buns! πŸ₯―😍πŸ₯― I used one kilogram of flour for two baking sheets πŸ˜‰. For a full house of hungry people, it was just right πŸ˜†. Of course, the best ones are the fresh ones on the day of baking but they can also be stashed in the freezer for later 🀫


  • 1 kg flour
  • 550 ml of milk
  • 1 yeast cube / 14 g dry yeast
  • 120 ml melted butter
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1egg
  • for sprinkling: caraway, poppy seeds, sesame, according to your taste


  1. Version with dried yeast:
    Pour the flour into a large bowl, add lukewarm milk, melted butter, dried yeast, salt, sugar and knead thoroughly for about 5 minutes.
  2. Version with yeast cube:
    First, prepare the yeast – pour part of the measured lukewarm milk into a small bowl. Add the crushed yeast along with one teaspoon of each: sugar, salt, and flour. Mix thoroughly and allow the yeast to rise.
    In a bowl, mix the rest of the flour, salt, and sugar. Add the rest of the lukewarm milk, the melted butter, and finally the risen yeast. Knead thoroughly. It will be a little sticky at first, but give it time, care, and love. After about 5 minutes of kneading, you will have a beautifully smooth dough.
  3. Fill a larger bowl with warm water. Put the bowl of kneaded dough in it and cover with a cloth and wrap in a blanket. Give it at least 30 minutes till it doubles in size.
  4. Preheat the oven to 220Β°C. Move the leavened dough onto the baking mat and you can start knitting buns. There are a few tricks for that, just take a look at a few instructions on youtube. I recommend always rubbing dough lightly with melted butter. It glides nicely and then the dough is tangled better.
  5. Put the buns onto the baking sheet lined with a baking paper and let them rest for another 15 minutes. Then smear them with a beaten up egg and sprinkle with seeds.
  6. Bake until golden for about 15-25 minutes .. it depends on your oven.

Enjoy πŸ˜˜πŸ’•
