Home > Recipes > BUTTER KUCHEN


This is adapted from a recipe of Rory’s Gran. She used farm butter instead of cream – I find that the thickened cream works really well. It is really yummy for afternoon tea. 



500g flour

2t dry yeast

¼ c sugar

75g butter

250ml lukewarm milk

2 small eggs



300ml thickened cream

Soft brown sugar

Ground cinnamon



  • Mix together ½ the milk with a teaspoon of the sugar and the yeast
  • Leave in a warm place to froth
  • Rub the butter into the flour and add the sugar – mix. I do this all in the food processor
  • Add the yeast mixture, balance of milk & the eggs to flour.
  • Mix well until the dough is of a sticky/stretchy consistency
  • Place in a bowl and leave, in a warm place, to rise until double in size
  • Knead and then roll dough out to fit a roasting pan
  • Leave to rise again
  • When risen, sprinkle liberally with cinnamon and then with brown sugar
  • Using the back of a wooden spoon make holes all over the dough
  • Using two teaspoons place little blobs of cream on the holes.
  • Bake in 190ºC oven for about 10 mins or until cooked

    Bangalore to Pune Bypass location can be accessed from your project site within couple of
    minutes of comfy drive. Excess of land, cheap flats and feasibility made the belt of Kandivali to Virar as the most preferred destinations.
    So, your household are well-assured of a good life residing in these homes.
