  • Put the flower into a bowl, crumble the yeast in, pour in some milk and mix up with the yeast. Cover it and rest for 10 minutes.
  • Add the other ingredients for the dough and knead everything into a smooth dough. Cover and let it rise for at least 20 minutes (1 hour is better).
  • Gently press dough down and, on a floured surface, roll into a roughly 30x70 cm rectangle. Mix the ingredients for the filling and spread evenly on the dough. Roll up from one long side, then cut your roll into 5cm long strips.
  • Press down the the flat side of the knife in the middle of the rolls, so that the centre goes down and the cut sides open up a bit.
  • Put rolls on a parchmented baking sheet and let them rise for another 10 minutes or so. Preheat the oven to 225C, eggwash the rolls and bake the rolls for ca. 12 minutes.
