How to Cook Walnut Rolls

  1. Pour 3/4 cup of sugar into a skillet and place it over medium heat. Stir as the sugar caramelizes. Remove from heat when the caramelized sugar turns amber-dark. Set aside.
  2. Use a larger bowl and a strainer to strain the flour. Add the eggs, salt and rum essence and mix them a little. Set aside.
  3. Add 1/4 cup sugar in a smaller bowl. Add the active dry yeast and the milk and mix.
  4. Pour the sugar-milk mixture into the flour mixture. Mix and start kneading the dough until it is elastic and non-sticky.
  5. Let it rise for 30 minutes.
  6. Make the butter-sugar mixture: add the butter and sugar in a bowl and mix them using a teaspoon.
  7. Flour your work surface, place the dough on it and spread it using a rolling pin.
  8. Cover one side of the dough with the butter-sugar mix and spread the chopped walnuts all over it.
  9. Roll the dough, then cut it into 8 smaller rolls.
  10. Preheat the oven to 360⁰ F/180⁰ C.
  11. Place the rolls in a saucepan, in which you’ve added the previously caramelized sugar, and bake them for 40 minutes.
  12. Serve them on a platter with powdered sugar sprinkled over them.
