This recipe is one that leaves a pleasant smell to the kitchen and at hour of testing I can close my eyes to savor each ingredient. This buns are stuffed  with guava jam but I also use other types of jams  and  dulce de leche. I make my homemade jams, but you can use the ones you like most. For those who live in a country that has ease of having guavas, I can give a guava jam recipe. Here in London I have a supplier who brings me fresh guavas. For parties of kids I cut the dough with shapes with flowers, cars, etc…


Serves: 40 buns


1 kg  all purpose  flour

1 pkg active dry yeast

1oo g sugar

4 eggs

550 ml  milk

250 g   unsalted  butter

20 g salt


In  a large mixing  bowl combine the flour and the dry yeast. Also add the eggs,salt and sugar.Stir the ingredients well, I like to mix with hands. Gradually add milk stirring  constantly. When the dough is smooth  and homogeneous, incorporating  butter. Turn out on a floured surface. Stir until the dough  stand smooth and elastic. Let the dough rest 1 hour. After the dough has rested ,divide the dough into small balls. Let rest until doubled in volume for 10 minutes. Finally, open a little balls and put a tablespoon of your favorite jam. Brush the buns with beaten egg. Bake the buns in preheated  220C , until golden.

Good appetite!
