It often happens that homemade pastries start to get stale almost immediately after cooking. This causes it to become hard and lose its flavor. But there is a very simple solution to this problem.

A useful life hack that will help baked goods not to get stale for a long time was published by Lifehack.

To keep your homemade cookies or pies fresh, you should put them in a plastic container with apple slices. This way, moisture will remain in the dishes and be absorbed by the baked goods.

Also, right now is the time to use apples to make delicious pies and buns, because the season of these fruits is in full swing.

The idea of making fluffy buns with apples was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Anna with the nickname annet_days. The secret of the dough is that yeast and sugar should be diluted in warm milk. Also, the dough should be kneaded as much as possible with your hands to make it elastic.

Ingredients for the dough:

  • milk – 150 ml
  • dry yeast – 6-7 g (or 20 g of fresh yeast)
  • butter – 100 g
  • eggs – 3 pcs
  • sugar – 4 tbsp
  • salt – 1/3 tsp

1. Dissolve 1 tbsp of sugar and yeast in warm milk. If you use fresh yeast, let it stand in a warm place for 30 minutes.

2. Add eggs, sugar, melted butter. Mix well.

3. Gradually add 500 g of flour and mix. Use another 50 g when kneading on the table, then grease your hands with oil and knead the dough well with a spatula.

4. Let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour. Then knead the dough and leave it again for an hour.

5. Form the buns.

6. Take a piece of dough, and knead it into a circle with your fingers. Put the filling and pinch the edges.

7. Put into a baking dish with a seam to the bottom.

8. Grease the buns with egg yolk.

9. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 180 degrees.
