If you have not had my mom’s sweet buns, you are really missing out!  These melt in your mouth, soft warm buns are absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! And after 7 years of being married, i still get slightly, but just slightly! jealous that my brothers and sisters who are not married yet, get to come home to these in the evening!  Oh well!  good thing I can make them too now!  Thanks mom for the awesome recipe! :)

Ingredients

 

3 tbs yeast

1 cup milk (warm)

½ cup sugar

1 cup flour

***********

4 eggs

1 1/2 stick butter (softened)

1 tsp salt

3 1/2 cup flour

(I always use Canadian Flour, when I made these I again, I ran out of Canadian, and used regular, and noticed that you will need only 2 cups flour instead of 3 1/2 for the 2nd part)

*********

egg wash ( 1 eggs, 2 tbs water)

large-grained  sugar

cinnamon

melted butter

 

In your mixing bowl, mix the yeast, sugar, 1 cup of flour and milk together and let sit and bubble for about 30 min.

Then add the 4 eggs, softened butter, tsp of salt and 3.5 cup flour and knead on medium for 15 min.

Place dough in a greased pan, turn to coat the top with oil.  Let rise till double in a warm spot. ( I usually heat the oven a few secs, then turn it off and put the dough inside)

When the dough had doubled in size, punch it down, and pinch off walnut sized balls, and pat into rounds.

Brush each round with melted butter.

Sprinkle on a few spoonfuls of sugar and sprinkle with cinnamon powder.

On the fold, cut in half with kitchen scissors.

Fold out to form a heart.  ( actually, cut in a little deeper that I did on this one for a nicer rise)

Place on greased cookie sheet and brush with egg wash.

Let rise about 15 min.

Heat oven to 450 degrees F, place the buns in the oven and immediately lower heat to 425 degrees F.

Bake 8 to 10 min till a nice golden brown.

    As always Luba, this recipe looks fantastic. Can’t wait to make it this Thursday for my parent’s arrival. Few questions for you;
    1. How long did you warm up your cup of milk? did you do it in the microwave?
    2. Should the butter be softened or melted?
    3. Can I use regular sugar instead of large grained?
    4. what temp do you heat the oven to in order for it to be warm to put the dough in?
    5. which yeast did you use?

    sorry for so many questions. I just want them to come out as perfect as yours for when my parents come to impress my mom :-)
    I love your blog and all of your recipes. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I was trying to save some of your recipes to my computer as a pdf file so i would be easier to follow when I cook, but I wasn’t able to for some reason.
    Thank you again. Can’t wait to make them.

      Natasha, don’t worry, this yeast dough is really good to work with and they will turn out great!
      1. I warm up milk in microwave for 40 seconds, double check it, if its too hot, it will kill the yeast, if its a bit colder, its not such a big deal.
      2. for the dough, the butter should be softened, I soften it in microwave if short on time, if you think of it ahead of time, just pull it out of fridge.
      3. yes, you can use regular sugar, I think it should be fine.
      4. I usually just turn it up to 350 degrees F for like 15 or 20 sec, then turn it off, and put the pan with dough in to rise.
      5. I buy my yeast from costco, it comes in a 2 pack, I keep it in the freezer, and never have problems with it not rising. by the way, you might want to get some fresh yeast to make sure the buns rise!

      Let me know if you have any other questions!
      Hmm, I will see if i can get the recipes to save as pdf.

    Hi Luba,
    I was just trying to save them as; print as pdf using a mac so that it would be easier to follow when i cook.

    I also made your merinated eggplant salad today and didn’t have any space in the fridge so I put it in the garage. It’s so cold where we live in upstate NY. Your marinade looked much clearer than mine. In mine you could totally see the 1 tsp of black pepper that I added :-)
    Also looking forward to making your chicken mushroom salad.
    Every time I see a post from you I get so excited about a new recipe.
    Thanks again for all the hard work.

      you know what? I just realized that I probably totally forgot to add the pepper to the marinade this time! :) oiy, that’s what happens when trying to do too many things at one time! :) yours will taste even better than mine with that pepper in it!! :)
