Koffiebroodje ( Coffee Buns )

For the month of January we the members of  baking-partners  were given two Dutch recipes for baking .
Our this month's host Kaveri suggested two very yummy and interesting recipes : Apple tarts and Koffiebroodge or Coffee buns . I found the recipe of coffee buns very interesting and hence decided to make them . They are Dutch sweet buns usually had with coffee and hence the name. These buns are actually baked slice rolls with sweet custard feeling . These yummy buns are very spongy and soft and went perfectly with hot cup of coffee. Thanks Swathi  and Kaveri for this lovely recipe.








Ingredients :

2 cups ..........................maida
1 tsp..............................dry active yeast
3 tbsp...........................sugar
1/4 cup ......................warm water
3/4 cup .....................warm milk
1/2 tsp.......................salt
2 tbsp.......................butter
1 tsp.........................vanilla


For the filling :

1/2 cup.................milk
2 tsp...................vanilla custard powder
2 tbsp................sugar
1/4 cup..............whipped fresh cream
2 to 3 tbsp..........dried blueberries ( soaked in little water )


For the glaze :

2 tbsp...................strawberry jam
1 tbsp..................water







Method :

Mix together yeast, sugar and warm water and keep aside for 10 minutes to rise.

Add flour and salt and mix well.

Also add butter , vanilla and warm milk and knead to a soft elastic dough.

Cover and let the dough rise for 60 to 70 minutes.

For the filling mix custard powder in 2 tbsp milk .

Heat the remaining milk with sugar.

Add the custard and milk mixture slowly to this hot milk and stir continuously.

When the mixture is thick remove from the gas.

When it cools down add whipped cream and mix well.

After 1 hour take the dough and punch it.

Knead it again and make 2 parts.

Roll each part into a rectangle shape.





Apply the custard evenly on it and sprinkle the blueberries.




Now roll the dough with seam down.

Cut 1 inch slices and arrange them on a greased baking tray.

Again let it proof for half an hour.

Brush the slices with butter and bake in a preheated oven for half and hour at 180 degrees.





For the glaze mix the jam and water and brush it on the baked slices.






Serve warm with a cup of strong hot steaming coffee.
