I stumbled across the idea for this via Pinterest a few months ago. However, the recipe had a different kind of dough with quite a few ingredients in it, so I decided to use my own basic dough, which can be used for a lot of different things. Here’s the recipe.
- 3 dl lukewarm water
- 25 g yeast
- 2 tbsps olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 8 dl flour
- In a big bowl, dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water and add olive oil and salt.
- Add three-quarters of the flour to the mixture and stir with a wooden spoon, until the dough is too thick to stir anymore.
- Spread the remaining 2 dl flour on the table and put the dough on top of it.
- Knead until the dough has absorbed the remaining flour and is smooth and elastic.
- Put the bowl in a warm place with a kitchen towel on top of the bowl and let it raise for 30-45 minutes or until it’s twice its original size.
- The dough can be used for both regular buns, pizza crust, loaves, etc.
Now, to make the doggy-buns, just follow these instructions. :3
- 1 portion base dough
- Raisins (soaked in water)
- 6 cocktail sausages
- A bit of olive oil
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
- Roll out the dough on a clean surface and cut it into 12 rectangles.
- Split 6 cocktail sausages into two and place a piece on each rectangle so that half of it sticks out.
- Fold the rectangle pieces of dough on top of the cokctail sausage pieces and press the edges in the sides to seal it a bit
- With a knife, cut diagonally into both sides of the rectangles and pull the pieces a bit outwards to create the ears on the buns.
- To make the buns look even more like dogs, use your hands to shape the upper layer of the lower part of the buns into a more curvy shape.
- Use 3 raisins (soaked in water in advance) per bun to create the dogs’ eyes and noses.
- Brush the surface of the buns with olive oil to get more colour.
- Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes on 200 degrees Celsius.
Bon appetite! :3
