1 tsp. salt (4 g)

⅔ cup brown sugar (149 g)

  1. Mix the flour with yeast. Add slightly warm milk, butter, sugar, egg and salt.

  4. Put the buns on a baking tray lined with baking paper, cover with a cloth and leave to rise for 25 minutes.
  5. After this time, brush them with a mixture of yolk and milk and bake at 180C degrees for about 20-25 minutes until fully golden.
  6. Mix the ingredients for the glaze with a mixer and put on slightly warm rolls.
