In this guide I am going to show you how to make jam filled buns (fastelavns buns in Danish). Fastelavn is like Halloween in Denmark, you wear colorful costumes, goes trick or treat....
But most important: The fastelavn buns!
Get your flour
Add it to the mixer with the sugar, butter and a little salt
Warm the milk, but just so you can dip your pinky finger, and not getting burned, this is very important!
Mix that batter! :P
Crack the egg
Pour it in the the milk
Add yeast in little pieces
Whisk till its gone
Pour milk (with egg and yeast) in the dry batter
If its too wet, like mine, add more flour
Set it to rest with a blanket over, for an hour and a half
Pour flour on the table
Roll the batter to ca. 11 small balls
Clap them flat, like a pancake
Add a teaspoon of the jam in the middle of each bun
Pack it like you want and squeeze the sides so the jam doesn't run out
I made a lot of different shapes. Meanwhile the oven preheats, let the buns rest for 25 minutes
Put in the oven at 200 degrees centigrade in 15-20 minutes
When they begin to get a golden color, it's time to take them out
Enjoy the delicious buns you made. Mmhhh!
If you want, you can cover them in frosting and sprinkles, but I choose not to. Thanks for reading, hope you liked the guide! You are welcome to leave a like and I'm open for new suggestions! :)
