Directions

Treat yourself to the ultimate weekend dessert with fluffy and tender buns. The delightful contrast between the juicy strawberries and the crispy topping creates a perfect balance of flavors and textures. Whether enjoyed with a cup of coffee or as an after-dinner treat, these buns will leave you craving more.

  1. In a bowl, mix the flour (2.5 cups) and instant yeast.(2 minutes)
  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients: sugar (2 tablespoons), butter (5 tablespoons), milk, and eggs. Mix until a smooth, sticky dough forms. If the dough seems too liquidy, add 2 additional tablespoons of flour. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and set it aside to rise for 1.5 hours.(90 minutes)
  3. Divide the dough into 9 parts. Roll each part into a ball and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Dip a small glass in a little bit of flour to prevent sticking and gently press it into the center of each bun to create a slight indentation.(5 minutes)
  4. To make the topping, mix cold butter (3 tablespoons), brown sugar (3 tablespoons), and flour (4 tablespoons) together in a bowl until crumbles form. Divide the topping among all buns.(5 minutes)
  5. Bake at 340°F (170°C) for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Let the buns cool completely before dusting with powdered sugar (optional). Enjoy!
