Buchteln are sweet rolls made of enriched yeast dough and baked in a casserole dish. Depending on the region, they are also called "Wuchteln", "Rohrnudeln", or "Ofennudeln". Buchteln are particularly juicy and delicious if you prepare them with a fruity filling. Depending on the season, the Buchteln can be filled with berry, apricot or plum jam. You can bake them with or without filling. They are usually served vanilla sauce, powdered sugar or eaten plain and warm.
Originally, Buchteln come from Bohemian cuisine and are widespread in Bavaria, Austria and South Tyrol. The name comes from the Czech "buchtičky" or "buchta". In Bavaria, Buchteln are often prepared with sultanas or cranberries. Our favourite is poppy filling.


Buchteln with Blackberry Marmalade

adapted from Oetker
  • 250 ml Whole milk, lukewarm
  • 70 g Sugar
  • 20 g Fresh yeast, crumbled ( or 7 g Dried yeast)
  • 400 g Organic bread or plain flour
  • 100 g Organic rye flour (or bread flour)
  • 80 g Butter, softened
  • 2 Eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • Blackberry jam
  • 12 Blackberries
  • 50 g Milk
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • Powdered sugar
  1. In a small saucepan, add half of the milk, 1 teaspoon of sugar and fresh or dried yeast. Stir the mixture together. Set aside on your kitchen counter for 10-15 minutes until the small bubbles form on the surface.
  2. In the bowl of your table mixer, add bread flour, rye flour, remaining sugar and milk, softened butter, eggs, a pinch of salt and the activated yeast mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  3. Cover the dough with a plastic film and leave it to rise in a warm place for an hour. Generously butter a large casserole dish. Set aside.
  4. Divide the dough into 12 even portions and shape each into a ball. Flatten each dough ball, place 1 teaspoon of jam and 1 blackberry on each, enclose with the dough, form into a ball again and place in the prepared casserole dish with the seam side down. Cover the rolls with a tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  5. Prepare the glaze. Heat the milk, sugar and 1 tablespoon of butter in a small saucepan until the sugar has dissolved. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200C/400F.
  6. Pour the glaze over the Buchteln and bake in the preheated oven for approx. 30 minutes until golden brown. As soon as the Buchteln are fresh out of the oven, brush the surface with the remaining 1 tablesoon of butter. Dust with icing sugar.

These are beautiful, Angie. Jam-filled buns sounds so delicious and they don’t even look that difficult to make.

Jeff the Chef 24/9/22 15:58

I love this. I'm guessing you eat them with your hands, but if you were to use a vanilla sauce, would you eat them with a knife and fork?

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida 24/9/22 17:52

These look MAGNIFICENT! Bread is my weakness anyway, and these look like our jelly donuts done better.

I definitely want mine with the fruity filling! Add a little creamy butter and I'd be in heaven!!!

These look so yummy. I've never made fruit filled buns before. As it gets cold I am thinking about getting back into bread making. I haven't done it since last early spring.Enjoy the rest of your weekend. hugs-Erika
