Yeasted sweet buns are my favorite dessert. If I could get away with it, I would eat them every day. The variety of sweet buns at any Polish bakery is endless {see our trip to a bakery here}, which makes it hard for me to say no! They come filled with fruit, poppyseeds, sweet cheese {my recipe here}, almond filling, no filling, you name it.

Sweet buns with pudding and crumble are one of my favorites, however. So today, I’m going to show you how I make this delicious sweet, but not too sweet dessert. The process is not difficult, just a bit time intensive. I hope you give it a shot thought, it is sooo worth it. 

Sweet buns with pudding and crumble are soft and only slightly sweet, vanilla pudding adds a bit of sweetness and crumble just makes everything better.

  • Yields: 15 buns
  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Cook Time: 1.5 hrs


  • 2 cups of vanilla pudding
  • For blooming yeast:
  • 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of warm milk
  • 1 packet (1/4 oz) of dry yeast
  • 2 tbs of sugar
  • For dough:
  • 3 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2 tbs of melted and cooled butter
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • Crumble:
  • 2/3 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup of powdered sugar
  • 4 tbs / 60 g of cold butter
  • 1 whole egg for egg wash


  1. Place all ingredients for blooming yeast in a large mixing bowl, mix and set aside for 10-15 minutes, until the mixture bubbles.

  2. Prepare pudding according to instructions on the package, set aside to cool.

  3. To yeast mixture add flour, milk, melted butter, eggs, vanilla and sugar and mix to combine then knead for 10-15 minutes, until dough is smooth. Set aside in a warm spot covered with a clean kitchen towel until it doubles in size.

  4. While dough is resting prepare crumble. Place all ingredients in a small bowl and massage with your fingers to combine and mixture starts to clump. Refrigerate until later.

  5. Take dough out of the bowl, roll out into a log and divide into 15 even pieces. Form each piece into a ball, flatten it and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Create a dimple in each disc.

  6. Whisk egg with about 1/2 tbs of water and brush unto each bun. Fill each dimple with pudding and then cover with crumble. Let rest of 15 minutes.

  7. In the meantime preheat oven to 350℉ / 180℃.

  8. After buns have rested bake for about 12 minutes.

  1. Made the SWEET BUNS WITH PUDDING AND CRUMBLE yesterday, but next time I might up the temperature a bit. I baked at 350 for the 12 minutes, but had to go an additional 9 to get a little browning. Also, I might try lemon pudding next time as well to give it a little kick. I liked how they turned out as they were not too sweet.
