Sweet Filled Buns

Let's make buchty: soft and fluffy yeast buns with a jam filling!

Originating in Czechia and popular throughout Europe, they're a sweet and satisfying treat!


Step #1

Make the dough

Buchty dough is similar to brioche and is enriched with butter, milk and egg yolks.

Step #2

The first rise

Let the dough rise for 2 hours or until it doubles in size. The dough is quite heavy so it can take a bit longer to rise.

Step #3

Shape and fill the buns

Divide the dough into 18 pieces and fill with your favorite jam. We chose cherry preserves!

Step #4

Pinch to close the buns

Fold the dough around the jam and pinch to close.

Step #5

second rise

Place the buchty in a pan so that they're barely touching and allow to rise for 30 minutes.

Step #6


Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 25 minutes or until lightly golden.

Step #7

dust with powdered sugar

Allow to cool completely and then dust with powdered sugar.

Step #8


Buchty are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast or light dessert!
