Sweet and soft Yeast Bun


  • 4 cups of plain white flour 
  • 30g (1oz.) dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk + 2tbls milk (for coating)
Preheat oven to 325°F (170°C).
Sift the flour into a big bowl and crumble the yeast into the middle of your bowl. Add a little bit of the sugar and pour some of the warm milk over it. Cover with fabric an let it rest for about 30min in a warm place. Now add the rest of the sugar, milk, salt, butter and the 2 eggs (roomtemperature). Combine all the ingredients until a dough is formed (add some extra flour if too sticky). Put the dough into the large bowl, cover up and let it rest for another 30-40 minutes in a warm place.
Divide the dough into three pieces and braid on a greased baking tray. Let it rest for another 10min and now brush the yolk and milk mixture onto your braid. Bake for around 50 minutes until golden brown.
