- 400 g wheat flour
- 7 g yeast
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 190 ml milk
- 40 g butter
- 150 g apple
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 60 g walnuts
- 150 g sugar

- Make the sweet yeast dough by mixing the flour with yeast, sugar, and salt.
- Add one chicken egg and warm milk to the mixture.
- Knead the soft dough.
- Mix the softened butter into the dough at the very end.
- Cover the dough with plastic wrap or a towel and leave in a warm place for 1 hour.
- Meanwhile, prepare the filling.
- Grate the apples with the peel on, dress with lemon juice, and squeeze out the juice.
- The better you drain the apples, the easier it will be to form the buns.
- Add chopped walnuts, leaving some for decoration, to the apples.
- Mix with sugar, cinnamon, and honey (you can use crystallized honey).
- Divide the dough into 12 parts, form balls, and cover with plastic wrap to prevent the tops from drying out.
- Divide the filling into 12 parts and form round buns as shown in the video.
- Cover again with plastic wrap and let the dough rise once more.
- You don’t need to brush the buns with egg.
- Decorate the top with walnuts, cover with a sheet of oiled parchment paper, and press down with a second baking sheet.
- Bake in a preheated 390°F oven for 15 minutes between two baking sheets.
These buns are perfect for tea, both hot and cold.
