I have been baking...

Apparently becoming a mum also mean you get domestic. Well I felt like baking, so the other day I made what in Danish is called "pølsehorn" and directly translated it's "sausage horns", these a great for a light/fast lunch or a snack. So here is pretty much how it went...

Getting out all the ingredients... or well almost all the ingredients, the hotdog sausages is missing.

Dissolving the yeast into the heated milk.

Adding the flour, butter, sugar and salt, and getting ready to get my hands messy...

After getting my hands into the whole mess, I was just hoping Jonas wouldn't wake up right then and there... luckily he didn't:)

The finished dough, just needed to sit for a few minutes, before moving on.
Rolling out the dough, adding the sausages...
Rolling up the horns...

Basting the horns with milk before going in the oven...
The finished result! Which is now eaten or frozen for later consumption:)

And here is the recipe:

500 gram wheat flour

150 gram butter

75 gram yeast

2½ dl milk

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

Heat the milk and dissolve the yeast.

Mix with the rest of the ingredients, knead it together to a smooth dough.

Divide them into 3 equal parts and leave them for a few minutes.

The roll each part out like a pizza, and cut into 6 pieces and roll around the sausage.

Leave them in a warm place for 30 minutes to rise.

Baste the horns with milk or whipped egg.

Bake at 250 degrees celsius for 10 minutes.

Enjoy! And have a nice weekend!
