Tahini Buns

Tahini Buns


We’d like to thank Andrie Nikolaou for sharing her great idea for this tahini recipe with us!

  • Preheat oven to 170* C (338* F) Fan.
  • Add all of the ingredients for the dough into the mixer’s bowl. Beat with the hook attachment.
  • When all of the ingredients become completely incorporated, set the dough aside to rise for about ½ an hour.
  • Combine all of the ingredients for the filling in a bowl.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured working surface. Roll out into long, thin strips. Spread filling over dough. Cover filling with dough turning it into a long, thin filled strip.
  • Take hold of both ends of the strip, turning them inwards, each in the opposite direction, until you form an S shape.
  • Then, fold the S shape in half, placing the top part (roll) over the bottom part. Press down on them gently so they can stick together. You can make it any size you like.
  • Transfer to a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for ½ an hour.
  • When ready, remove from oven and brush with syrup.
