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.

Base dough:


  • 3 dl lukewarm water
  • 25 g yeast
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8 dl flour


  1. In a big bowl, dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water and add olive oil and salt.
  2. Add three-quarters of the flour to the mixture and stir with a wooden spoon, until the dough is too thick to stir anymore.
  3. Spread the remaining 2 dl flour on the table and put the dough on top of it.
  4. Knead until the dough has absorbed the remaining flour and is smooth and elastic.
  5. 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.
  6. The dough can be used for both regular buns, pizza crust, loaves, etc.


Now, to make the doggy-buns, just follow these instructions. :3


doggy bun


  • 1 portion base dough
  • Raisins (soaked in water)
  • 6 cocktail sausages
  • A bit of olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
  2. Roll out the dough on a clean surface and cut it into 12 rectangles.
  3. Split 6 cocktail sausages into two and place a piece on each rectangle so that half of it sticks out.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Use 3 raisins (soaked in water in advance) per bun to create the dogs’ eyes and noses.
  8. Brush the surface of the buns with olive oil to get more colour.
  9. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes on 200 degrees Celsius.


Bon appetite! :3
