Sweet baking recipe Franzbrötchen

Köstliche Franzbrötchen selber gemacht/ How to bake 'Franzbrötchen' (May 2019).


At home is this sugary-cinnamon specialty in Hamburg. Apparently the hamburgers tried on French croissants - and created their own pastry. The soft snails are a bit more elaborate in the preparation, but they simply taste wonderful!

Ingredients :

  • 500g flour
  • 250 ml of milk
  • 1 cube of fresh yeast
  • 50 g of soft butter
  • 200 g of chilled butter
  • 250 g of sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation :

  1. Put the flour in a bowl and form a hollow in the middle. Heat the milk at the same time until it is lukewarm.
  2. Crumble the fresh yeast into the flour and distribute the soft butter, 50 g of the sugar and the salt on the edge of the flour.
  3. Pour the warm milk to the yeast in the trough and begin to knead the ingredients from the inside out until a compact dough is formed. Dust it with some flour and leave it covered in a warm place for about 15 minutes.
  4. 4. Roll out the yeast dough on a floured work surface to a rectangle of approximately 30x25 centimeters. Now cut the chilled butter into thin slices and fill a half of the dough with it. Beat the other half of the dough over and squeeze the edges together and beat them under.
  5. Now the dough must be rolled out to a rectangle of size 30x50. Beat the dough from the narrow side about one-third of the way to the middle. Then fold the dough from the other narrow side over the first piece, so that there are three dough layers on top of each other. Keep the dough cool for about 20 minutes.
  6. Mix the remaining sugar with the cinnamon. Then roll out a dough rectangle again, this time in a size of about 80x40 centimeters. Coat the rectangle with water or orange juice and sprinkle the sugar-cinnamon mixture over it as evenly as possible. Roll the dough out of the long side as hard as possible to create a long roll.
  7. Cut the roll into pieces 4 centimeters wide each. Place a wooden spoon parallel to the cut surface on the dough pieces and press them in with them. This creates the typical Franzbrötchen shape and the sides bend upwards.
  8. Place the Franzbrötchen on a sheet of baking paper and let it go for another 15 minutes. In the preheated oven, they are now baked at 200 degrees for about 20 minutes until they are golden brown.
