Easter is rapidly approaching, and I never had the chance to share my Easter recipes with you! Have a look at my previous post on descriptions of my Easter growing up, great memories, and lots of good food. And, as I say at the end of that post: it meant family above all.
My dad and I would often bake together for Easter, so I will share his recipes with you first. We would eat these buns for Easter breakfast, just like little baguettes.
500 g flour
25 g yeast (fresh, or 1 sachet of dry yeast)
10 g salt
3 g caster sugar
200 g water
12 g butter
8 g sugar
- Make the dough, leave it to rise for 30 minutes. (For tips on making a dough, see here)
- Knead, divide the dough into 15, and roll into round buns.
- Leave again under a damp towel in a warm place for 30 minutes.
- Sprinkle riceflour over the top. Use a chopstick to make a crease along the middle of the bun (take care to not cut through the dough, but there should be two distinct mounds of dough barely attached.
- Rise for another 20 minutes
- Place a large oven proof dish of water in the bottom of the oven before turning it on, then preheat it to 230 degrees.
- Leave the container of water, and bake the pistoletjes for 15 minutes. (With steam)
- Remove the water, bake for another 10 minutes.
