Tasty Flower Brunswick for Garden or Jungle Party

When I was little my grandfather always made Brunswick and it was one of the best things I knew.
Since then I have not really made some of them, but found a recipe the other day for this danish bread/cake, shaped like flowers, and I thought it was a super idea, if one was having a birthday party in the garden or jungle themed party. They can both be decorated as red, yellow or green flowers.

The ingredients you need for 16 pieces are:

  • 50 g butter
  • 4 dl milk
  • 50 g yeast
  • 500 g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


For Brunswick filling you need:

  • 150 g butter
  • 150 g brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon light syrup

Decorating the bread:

  • Pink glaze of red currant juice/or fruitcolor and icing sugar.
  • little Click mix or other mini-candy

The approach to the cakes are:

The dough

  1. Melt the butter in a heavy-based saucepan.
  2. Add the milk and let the mixture stand a few minutes. in the pot so that the milk gets a little hot.
  3. Pour mixture into a bowl and stir the yeast in it.
  4. Add the flour, sugar and salt and knead thoroughly.
  5. Let dough rise warm and covered with a tea towel for approx. 30 min.

Forming the Brunswick

  1. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, divide it into 16 pieces and shape them into balls.
  2. Press balls flat, so they get a diameter of 8-10 cm, and put them on 2 baking sheets lined with baking paper.
  3. Cover again with a tea towel and let rise for another 30 min.

Making the filling:

  1. Mix butter, brown sugar and syrup in a heavy-based saucepan and let it melt.
  2. Boil the mixture now for liquid caramel – it takes approx. 10-15 min. Stir in candy along the way.
  3. Prick the swollen buns with your thumb, resulting in 7-8 wells in each (they must hold the caramel).
  4. Spread the caramel over the buns with a spoon – and beware, it’s hot stuff!

Time to bake:

  1. Bake brunswick buns in the oven at 250 ° C for approx. 10 min.
  2. Leave to cool, and decorate them with frosting and candy and possible. flag.
  3. Serve the freshly baked brunswick!

Tip: The recipe here can also be used for one large pan-Brunswick and pricked as Brunswick balls but bake for approx. 12-15 min.
