  • Dough:
  • 1 cup / 250ml Milk
  • oz / 10g Fresh yeast
  • 5 cup / 600g Flour
  • 7 tablespoon / 100g Butter room temperature
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Honey or sweetener of choice
  • Covering:
  • 7 tablespoon / 100g Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Honey or sweetener of choice
  • 2 tablespoon Cinnamon ground
  1. Dough:
  2. Put yeast into lukewarm milk to dissolve.
  3. Measure flour, butter and put them in a mixing bowl together with eggs, honey, the yeasty milk.
  4. Dough it together until getting and even dough.
  5. Cover the bowl and leave it in a warm place for an hour to raise. Meanwhile make the cinnamon covering.
  6. Covering:
  7. Put melted butter, ground cinnamon and honey in a small bowl to mix them together.
  8. Assembly:
  9. Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.
  10. When the dough doubles in about an hour, take it out of the bowl to put it on a well floured surface.
  11. Roll it out to about ⅞" / 2cm height.
  12. Cut little balls with a 1½" / 4cm cookie cutter.
  13. Roll the first layer of balls onto the cinnamon-butter cover.
  14. Place them into the baking form.
  15. Place the next layer of balls on top without dipping them and now brush them with the same cinnamon covering. The reason we don't dip the higher layers into the cinnamon cover is that doing so picks up too much of the butter cover that slowly drips down into the bottom of the baking form creating a buttery pool without much use.
  16. Put it into the preheated oven for about 30 to 40 minutes to bake.
  17. Let it cool a couple of minutes then take it out to a cooling rack for a bit more.
  18. For fancy serving place some balls onto a plate and pour vanilla custard over it.
