Buchteln/Buchty/Buchtel or Wuchteln is a traditional Austrian Sweet pull apart rolls, these yeasted pull apart style sweet rolls are filled with apricot jam. I have been looking for something to finish some homemade apricot jam and finally i landed to this beautiful site. Though these buns are sweet pull apart rolls, this cuties will be mildly sweet as this rolls calls for less sugar. Since i want to stick with the traditional way of preparing this Austrian sweet pull apart rolls, i followed the original recipe and trust me this Buchteln are my kid's favourite. These rolls came out extremely fluffy, airy with a nicely browned top which will turn super soft once its cool completely. Often served with vanilla sauce, these rolls makes an excellent dessert after a meal or for an evening snack.Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing this BM#65.
The recipe of this Austrian sweet pull apart rolls goes for an easy breezy yeasted dough, the tricky part of making this buns is the filling. While filling the dough, you should take care not to fill the dough much, as apricot jam tends to spread quickly on the edges which makes almost impossible to seal those buns.I enjoyed thoroughly baking this ultimate Austrian traditional sweet pull apart rolls, trust me these rolls are quite dangerously addictive sweet rolls, one cant just stop having this incredible spongy rolls if they tastes these cuties for the first time. Am running this week of blogging marathon with Pull apart breads as this week's theme. Obviously these cuties are going to be a part of this incredible theme.
