2 cups flour (I definitely used more as the dough is very wet
125g butter (4 oz)
3 tsps baking powder
Pinch salt
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.
Knead lightly.
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.

  1. 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.
