Recipe by Annacia
READY IN: 50mins




  • Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat.
  • Add the butter, stir until melted and pour into a large bowl to cool.
  • Dissolve yeast in the milk mixture.
  • Mix in 1/3 cup sugar, salt, eggs and 2 cups flour.
  • Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  • Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces and form into rounds.
  • With a rolling pin, roll the rounds into oval buns. Place them onto two lightly greased baking sheets.
  • Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • While The Bread Rises, Make The Topping:
  • In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup sugar, 2/3 cup flour, butter until a crumb mixture forms.
  • Stir in the egg yolks until well blended. Crumble the topping over the rolls so the entire surface is covered.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until sugar topping is lightly browned.
