It certainly is a sticky week…Not sure if I am done yet…
Now as you can imagine, the greedyboys did not like the rosewater sticky buns as much as greedy me!!
Luckily I am cunning:)
When I made the buns, I made half and half…
So there were sticky buns for all…Hubby and I enjoyed both:)
Take the Rosewater recipe and these are the following changes you want to make…
Instead of mixing aniseed in with the dry ingredients, Add in some vanilla bean seeds to the warmed milk.
Plus you use a different filling as well…
Just in case, here is the recipe adjusted:)
What will you need????
4 cups of strong bakers flour
pinch of salt
2 tsps of vanilla seeds or a big splash of vanilla essence
120 g butter
1 and half cups of warmed milk
splash of maple syrup
15g of dried yeast.
Warm milk, add in maple syrup, vanilla seeds and stir in yeast.
Allow to froth and become creamy, usually about 15 minutes.
Combine flour and salt in a bowl and mix through.
Pour yeasty mix into dry and form a dough.
Knead until well combined and then slowly add in pieces of butter.
Mix until well combined and then knead for 5-6 minutes until soft but elastic.
Place in lightly oiled bowl , cover and leave for 2 hours.
200 gms butter
2tbsp vanilla essence or vanilla bean seeds.
Brown butter until a nutty colour/aroma in a saucepan and allow to cool, then add in vanilla.
Allow to cool properly, do not use on pastry until cool:)
Place dough on a lightly floured bench/board and roll out.
I usually do 30 cms by 45cms but you may like it thicker.
Spread the browned butter on the dough, leaving about a 1cm edging all round.
Staring from the longest edge side , roll up the dough (as above)
When in a log, cut dough into 12-14 pieces and place in a roasting dish.
Leave a bit of breathing space as they will almost double.
Cover lightly and leave for 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 200 celsius 30 minutes before buns are ready.
Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes and then reduce heat to 175 celsius and bake for a further 35 minutes.
Remove from oven when baked and allow to cool in the pan.
When cool, drizzle icing over the top.
