Sweet Cheese Buns (Poale-n brau)

For a long time you kept asking me about a good sweet cheese recipe, and you forgot one that is worth trying. I would say that it is a classic recipe, the dough is leavened and well kneaded, with an exemplary texture - fluffy, tender and aromatic.

I recommend you to try them, very tasty and beautiful.


White flour
450 g
Cow milk
200 ml
Bakers yeast
50 g
5 pieces
2 for dough and 2 for cheese and 1 for greased
Sunflower oil
4 tbsp
8 tbsp
4 in dough and 4 in cheese
Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp
0.5 tsp
Farmers cheese
250 g
be sure the cottage cheese is drier
1 tbsp
Lemon zest
1 tbsp
and raisins, optional

Step by step


Sift the flour into a deep bowl.


Mix the yeast with 2 tablespoons of warm milk and 1 tablespoon of sugar.


Pour the mayonnaise over the flour in the bowl and let it rise a little for 15-20 minutes.


Then add the rest of the milk, 2 eggs, 3 tablespoons of sugar, salt, a vanilla essence.


Mix the composition well with a spoon.


Then add the oil, mix.

I put the dough in the bread machine and put it in a simple kneading mode - you can do the same without the machine - add a handful of flour and knead the dough until it becomes soft and elastic.


Form a ball of dough, help yourself with flour if needed.


I greased a bowl with a little oil and leavened the dough - covered with a towel or plastic wrap.

It should increase in volume about 3 times in an hour.


During this time prepare the cheese filling - mix the cottage cheese with 4 tablespoons of sugar, 2 egg yolks, vanilla, semolina and optionally lemon peel.

I also added raisins, it is optional.


Beat the egg whites from the 2 eggs and incorporate them into the cheese composition.

Note: I would put only 1 egg in the cheese, I thought the filling was a bit liquid, even with drier cheese, so you see


Meanwhile, the dough is ready, take it out on the table and spread a square sheet (help yourself with flour), about 3-4mm thick.


Cut into 16 smaller squares - see picture.


Put a teaspoon of cheese on each.

Be careful not to overdo the filling, it will be difficult to work them and they will come out to ripen.


Form the cheeses - glue the opposite corners to each square.

Be careful to glue them well, because they tend to peel off when baked.


Place them on an oven tray greased with a little oil.

Carefully grease them with a well-beaten egg with a brush.


Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees, about 35-40 minutes, until nicely browned.


It is enjoyed hot, with the whole family - absolutely delicious.

Good appetite!
