This recipe is a hit on social media and usually when a recipe is a hit, I am the last one making it lol.
The simplicity of the recipe was the one that won me over, and the fact that it was spreading and sharing on the web quickly made me want to check why this was so. In the original recipe the dose is as written, and I was doing a smaller dose because I didn't have enough flour, so I combined 300 ml of milk with 500 g of flour, instead of 500 ml of milk with about 800 g of flour. The pictures are with the dosage I was using, if I were following the recipe, there would have been 1 more roll in the pan.
  • 500 ml of warm milk
  • 750-800 g flour
  • 1 cube of yeast (40 g)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 9 tablespoons oil
  • half a cube of softened margarine / butter (125 g)
  • sesame seeds for sprinkling
  • 1 egg for coating
  • 500 g ricotta cheese or feta cheese for filling
  1. First dissolve the yeast in lukewarm milk with sugar, it doesn't have to rise, just let it dissolve.
    In a deep bowl, dissolve the yeast, add oil and salt and add 700 to 750 g flour. Start mixing with the dough mixer for about 10 minutes until a nice smooth and soft dough forms. Let the dough rest for 20 minutes.
  2. Then transfer it to a floured surface and divide it into 5 equal parts. If your dough is sticky, add more flour.
  3. Roll each part into a long form crust, coat it with softened margarine / butter and apply the cheese filling or cheesecake. Wrap in roll and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Repeat the same with remaining 4 dough.
  4. Coat each roll with melted margarine / butter, then cut into slices, coat with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cover the rolls with a kitchen towel and let rise for about half an hour in a warm place. I put them in a preheated oven at 50 C degrees to rise faster.
  5. Then turn the oven to 180 C degrees and bake for about half an hour until they get a beautiful golden color as in the main picture.
