- 500 g all purpose flour
- 45 g sugar
- 1 large egg
- 60 g softened butter
- 250 ml warm milk
- 25 g fresh yeast
- 1 tsp salt
- 250 g feta cheese
- 100 g cream cheese
Mix yeast with 1 tbsp of the measured sugar and some of the warm milk.
In the bowl of your mixer blend flour with the remaining sugar and salt.
Add the rest of the milk, the egg and the butter. Blend for a few seconds.
Add the yeast mixture. Knead on medium speed for about 10 min until you have a soft and elastic dough.
Oil your hands and take the dough out of your bowl. Knead for a few minutes to smooth it.
Put it in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with food membrane and let it rise in a warm spot for 45 min.
Crumble feta and mix it with the cream cheese.
TIP: Divide the filling in 10 equal portions so that all buns are equally stuffed. Refrigerate while the dough is rising.
Deflate, weigh and cut the dough into 10 equal pieces.
Smooth them under your palm and cover with plastic. Roll out each ball into a 15 cm / 5.9” disk.
With a pizza cutter, make small vertical cuts to ⅓ of the disk.
Spread the filling along the opposite side, wet the edge of the disk with some water and roll into a log.
Repeat the process and arrange them on paper lined baking tray.
Cover with plastic and place in a warm spot. Let them rise until doubled in size.
Brush with milk and optionally sprinkle with sesame.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180⁰C / 350⁰F for 25 minutes.
