Soft, sweet heart-shaped buns are associated with childhood for some, and romance for others. It doesn’t matter if you want to cook it for their child or your loved one, everyone will be delighted!
The dough for these heart-shaped buns is filled with a large amount of butter, eggs and sugar. Yeast can be used both fresh and dry. Such a dough is difficult to rise, so make it strictly following the recommendations. So let’s get started!
Step by step method
Pour the yeast into the warmed milk and leave for 15 minutes to dissolve in the liquid.
Add salt, a teaspoon of sugar and a glass of flour.
Stir. Put the dough for half an hour in a warm place to rise.
Put eggs in another container, pour sugar (180 g).
Whisk with a whisk until bubbles appear.
Melt the butter in the microwave. Pour it into the bowl with eggs, mix.
Combine the mixture with the dough.
After mixing, add the rest of the flour.
As you may have noticed, the recipe indicates the approximate amount of flour. How much flour to put in the dough depends on its quality, the size of the eggs, and also on how liquid the butter turns out after melting. Therefore, it is recommended to pour three cups of flour first, and then add the rest of the flour during the kneading process.
The end result should be a soft, slightly sticky dough. A well-kneaded dough will easily move away from the walls of the dish, only slightly sticking to your hands. Transfer the dough to a larger bowl.
Cover the dish with a lid, leave in a warm place for two hours. During this time, the dough will rise well.
Pour a handful of flour on the table, lay out the dough, knead well again. Put it back in the bowl and let it rise one last time. Put the dough back on the table, but do not knead.
Divide it into pieces the size of a large chicken egg.
Bend the edges of each piece towards the middle, forming a ball.
Cover the balls with a towel and let them rise. Preheat the oven to 210°. Now proceed to the formation of hearts. Roll out the dough into a layer. Lubricate with vegetable oil, sprinkle with sugar.
Roll the dough into a roll.
Pinch it on all sides. You will get such a pie.
Connect its ends together.
Rotate so that the side is on top. With a sharp knife, make an incision 3/4 length almost to the bottom.
Unfold the bun in the form of a book. You will get a cute heart.
Sometimes the first time it may not come out quite neat, so touch it up with a knife, cutting the layers of dough in the middle. Transfer the hearts to a baking sheet covered with parchment, cover with a towel, put in a warm place for 15-20 minutes.
Lubricate well-risen hearts with an egg beaten with a teaspoon of water. Bake the buns for 20 minutes until golden brown.
Cover the finished pastry with a thin towel and cool until slightly warm. Hearts turn out beautiful, with a surface shiny from melted sugar, quite sweet.
If the cooled buns are placed in the microwave for half a minute, they will become as fresh.
Oooh, these are buns from my childhood! Thanks for the recipe!
