Since the scent of cinnamon puts you in the Christmas spirit, you can make the sweet Buchty with apple-cinnamon filling on the days of Advent. This makes them a great change from the classic Christmas cookies.
What kind of apple for the filling?
You can use any variety of apples for this Buchty recipe. Just make sure the apples are fresh and crisp. Alternatively, you can peel them before roasting if you don’t want any skin in the Buchty filling.
Experiment with different fillings
I filled my Buchty with apples and cinnamon. But with this recipe you can try different fillings.
Fill the yeast rolls with jam, for example with homemade blackcurrant jam, or with homemade nut nougat cream. Fresh fruit also works as a filling. In summer, berries are perfect for this.
I made the yeast dough for my apple Buchty with fresh yeast. Alternatively, you can also use dry yeast. For the recipe below you need 6 g of it.
The procedure with dry yeast is the same as with fresh yeast. You dissolve it together with sugar in lukewarm milk. The rest of the steps are identical to the ones in this recipe.
Which baking pan?
I baked the Buchty with apple-cinnamon filling in a rectangular baking pan measuring 38 cm x 25 cm. Alternatively, you can use a round baking pan of similar size.
Just make sure that the baking pan is not too small. The yeast rolls should not be squeezed in. In my baking pan, I spread the Buchty about 1 cm apart from each other. Then, as they rose, they got bigger and were able to stick to each other.
Buchty with sugar crust
Before baking, I lightly sprinkled the buns with brown sugar. This gives them a sugar crust. Note that the surface of the yeast rolls with sugar will brown faster in the oven. Therefore, you should watch them and possibly cover them with baking paper if they become too brown but are not yet baked on the inside.
If you don’t want a crispy crust, you can just brush the Buchty with egg before baking. Or you can omit brushing with egg and dust the buns with powdered sugar after baking.
Vegan Buchty with apple-cinnamon filling
You can change this recipe to vegan. To do so, replace cow’s milk in the yeast dough with a plant-based alternative, such as almond milk, lupine milk, soy milk, oat milk or coconut milk. Instead of butter, use vegan margarine. Simply leave out the egg. Just note that without egg you need less flour. You can also use a little more plant milk.
