Final Notes for the Homemade Jam Buns Recipe with Leavened Dough
➡️ Jam buns belong to my favorite cake recipes even if they are considered today’s old-fashioned cakes. As a child, my grandmother baked homemade jam buns in the winter when fresh fruit was no longer available. However, she had a pantry full of jars of fruit jam that she made during the summer.
➡️ I always watched how the homemade jam buns were baked and I couldn’t wait to get them out of the oven. I’m not telling you how impatient I was for them to cool down a bit so I could taste them!
➡️ This homemade jam buns recipe has Hungarian origins but, as far as I know, similar recipes are available in all countries in Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans. Preparing the homemade jam buns recipe is easy, even if the dough needs some time to rise. However, this applies to any leavened cake.
➡️ I like to make the dough by hand and you have detailed instructions above on how to get the best results. Whoever wants, can make dough with the food processor.
➡️ The homemade jam buns are traditionally made with apricot jam because it is the favorite fruit of Hungarians when it comes to jam. However, the jam cake can be made with any other type of jam, but I recommend using a drier jam such as marmalade with a high fruit content.
➡️ As far as I know, everyone loves jam cakes and therefore I think you will like my jam buns recipe that combines the sweetness of marmalade and the fluffiness of yeast dough! Enjoy making homemade jam buns from scratch! For additional info, read more on dough!
