Rustic, soft and oh so good chocolate buns! Enjoy them while they are still warm with cold butter. Try the recipe here:
Chocolate buns (12-14 pieces):
2 dl whole milk
125 g butter
25 g yeast
1 tsp. salt
Ca. 500 g flour
100 g chocolate drops or chopped chocolate (I have used 50 g dark and 50 g milk chocolate)
1 egg for brushing
Heat milk in a pan add the butter so it can melt in the milk. Pour the milk into a kitchen machine and crumble the yeast into the milk. Add egg, sugar and salt and stir around. Add alternately flour and chocolate and stir well. Run the dough for approx 8 minutes until it becomes smoothe and releases the bowl. Cover the dough with a dish towel and let the dough raise for 1 hour. Divide the dough into 12-14 equal pieces and roll them into buns. Let them raise for about 30 minutes. Turn on the oven at 200 C. Brush the buns with the egg and bake them for approx. 15-18 minutes until they are golden. Let the buns cool down a bit before enjoying them. Bon appetite!
What does Ca. Mean ( you put in front of the ingredient list for flour)? My dough always seems extremely dry before it raises, is that normal?
Oh, sorry ca. means approx. So it’s not sure that you have to use all the flour 🙂
2 dl whole milk. Whats dl?

Frederikke, Is 50 g of yeast accurate. That is equivelant to 6 tablespoons USA. That seems like alot of yeast
It’s 50 grams of fresh yeast 🙂 In Denmark we almost only use fresh yeast when baking 🙂
