There’s so much pleasure in working with dough and watching it develop, grow and change its form, knead it into various shapes and enjoy warm home made breads.
Even if you’re not a skilled bread maker and baker, these buns will make you want to bake them on a daily basis. This is a staple in Croatian cuisine and we call them “kiflice“. For a fresh from the oven breakfast or as a party snack, even for a family dinner, they’re perfect any time. And they really are no brainer. The trick is in the baking powder used together with yeast that makes the dough rise nicely and you don’t have to let it rest until doubled in size. That’s why they’re quick. Just throw all the ingredients into bowl and let your kitchen appliance knead it for several minutes. You then roll the dough out and shape into buns. You can fill them with your favorite cheese. Another secret and key ingredient is sour cream which makes the dough incredibly soft. Brush wit yolks, sprinkle with favorite seeds, bake for 15 to 20 minutes and they’re good to go!
