What’s nicer on a Sunday morning than the smell of freshly baked bread? And what if you could cut the preparation time by 80% by using baking powder instead of yeast and making small palm-filling easy bake buns?
These cheesy buns are super easy to make.
You will need:
- 1 cup grated cheese for the dough (any kind will work, experiment with your favourite kind or use some cheese leftovers)
- 1 cup corn flour (you could also use yuca flower for this recipe)
- a spoon of butter or olive oil or any kind of oil you have
- half a cup of fresh or cottage cheese
- a pinch of salt
- a pinch of baking powder
- 1 egg
Mix everything in a bowl until a soft dough is formed. Roll into egg-size or smaller spheres and bake in a tray over baking paper, at high heat, until golden on top. They should be ready in around 20 minutes, but you can check if they are with a toothpick. Push the toothpick in the centre of one of your buns: if it comes our clean, it’s ready, if it comes out still wet with dough, give it 5 more minutes and try again.
Optionally you could fill these with another type of cheese, with jam, olives, nuts anything you want really!
Enjoy your snack!
