How to make Buttermilk Swiss Buns

Prepare the dough for Swiss rolls

  • Put the flour in a large bowl and crumble the yeast in the center.
  • Add the slightly beaten eggs, sugar, honey, salt and milk, and begin to knead.
  • When everything is more or less united, we add the butter little by little.
  • We keep kneading.
  • We go to the work surface that we will have previously smeared with sunflower oil, as well as our hands. We must work the dough until we achieve a smooth and homogeneous dough, which is elastic and does not stick to the table.
  • We form a ball, and let it rest in a bowl covered with a cloth until it doubles in volume, it will usually take between 1 and two hours.

We shape the dough

  • After this time, we oil our hands again to work the dough.
  • We carefully remove the dough from the bowl, and cut it into portions of the same size (between 12 and 16 as in the photo).
  • Each portion in turn is divided into three parts, a larger one that will be the head, and two smaller and equal ones for the ears.
  • Shape each portion into a ball and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  • We leave the ears half a cm apart from the head, and quite apart from each other, since they will join the head as they grow, and will tend to join each other if we leave them too close.
  • Let stand between half an hour and 1 hour, until they increase slightly in size.

We bake the swiss buns

  • Preheat the oven to 200º C, brush the buns with milk, and place in the oven for about 10 minutes at 180º C.
  • Remove and let cool on a wire rack while you prepare the buttercream.

Buttercream to accompany Swiss rolls

  • To prepare the buttercream, heat the water with the sugar and, when it boils, remove from the heat and let cool.
  • Once cold, and with a wire whisk, beat the butter and add the syrup little by little, while we continue beating, until obtaining a fluffy cream.

How to taste homemade Swiss rolls

To taste these Swiss rolls , we carefully open them and fill them with the butter cream that we have explained above. They are also delicious if we fill them with jam, Nutella or simply on their own, dipping them in a glass of cocoa or milk.
