2 cups flour (I definitely used more as the dough is very wet
125g butter (4 oz)
3 tsps baking powder
3 Tbls sugar (recipe calls for 1 Tbls but I like them to be sweet)
1 egg beaten in cup and filled with milk and cream, or just milk
Soft dry ingredients, rub or grate in butter with fingers, and add egg mixture.
Roll out rectangular shape, spread with melted butter, cinnamon and sugar (use a lot), roll up like swissroll, slice about 3cm (1 inch) thick and place in greased and floured patty tins. Brush top with more melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake at 200C (400F) for about 15 minutes in moderate oven.
Variation: I put apples inside (nice especially for New Year) or chocolate chips or you can spread with Nuttella! The choice is yours!
Boulkas are a traditional bun for Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement).
They quick and easy to make and stunning to whip up for any time.

Even though the recipe is lovely and boolkes are delicious, Yom Kippur is a fast. I think it needs to be mentioned that sweets are traditional both before and after the fast, but not during! I don’t know about boolks being traditional, as we probably had different traditions, but to break fast by first eating something sweet with a cup of tea, before a real meal, was definitely a tradition in my family.
Thanks for your comment Koolkosherkitchen. I will check with the member that submitted this recipe and ask her
In response to you comment. The member replied as follows:
Thanks Es for this. You absolutely correct as to that Yom Kippur is a fast and we have sweet before and after.
It has always been a traditional thing since I was a little girl and remember, that we had bulkas. You can have them more or less in the form of a babka also – anything sweet with a cup of tea, coffee or what lots of people love, coke and milk. A lot of milk.
Apologies for this again but as I said, we never have a Yom Kippur without bulkas. Sorry😢
Thank you for following through, and please thank your member for me for a sweet response – in every sense of the way. I wish her and her family Happy Holidays and a Sweet Year!
This is Dolly, not ES
Thanks dear – I will pass your message over to Hannah. I just copied and pasted her response as she wrote it.
All the best to you and your family as well!
