Egg for glaze

  1. Heat the milk until hand-warm (around 38C) and crumble the yeast into it.
    Whisk together egg, sugar and salt and add it to the mix.
    Add wheat flour a little at a time and knead into an elastic and soft dough.
    Add melted butter.
    Let the dough double in size in a warm place under a baking sheet.
    Divide the dough into 20 pieces and roll them into balls.
    Put the buns on a baking sheet on a baking sheet and let them rise under a cloth.
    Cut the filling butter into small cubes.
    Brush the buns with egg for a glaze.
    Make an indentation in the center of each bun with your thumb. Press the cube of butter into the hole. Sprinkle crushed anise paste on top.

    Serve the buns warm with milk.
