Cooking steps

Preparing the Dough

  • 1In a small bowl, add the sugar, dry yeast, water, and mix well with a spoon until well combined. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  • 2In a large bowl, add the flour, powdered milk, vegetable oil, eggs, salt, the yeast mixture, and mix all the ingredients together using your hand, until forming a ball with the dough.
  • 3Cover the dough and set aside at room temperature for 40 minutes to rise.

Preparing the Kiri Cheese Balls

  • 1Cut each Kiri into 4 cubes.
  • 2In a plate, mix the powdered sugar and cinnamon together, and gently roll 2 Kiri cubes together in the mixture until completely covered.

Shaping the honeycomb

  • 1Using your hands, form small balls with the dough. Slightly spread each ball until its 5 cm long.
  • 2Place a walnut, kiri cheese, and roll them around to shape small buns.
  • 3In a round mold (20 cm x 5 cm) covered with parchment paper, place a small circle (12 cm) in the center. Place the mini balls one right next to the other until a nice honeycomb is formed with an empty center.
  • 4In a small bowl, mix the egg and vinegar until well combined, brush the honeycomb with the egg mixture, and top with sesame seeds.
  • 5Place the honeycomb in a preheated oven at 180C (356F) and bake for 35 minutes or until its golden brown.

Preparing the Syrup

  • 1In a saucepan over medium heat, place the water, sugar, and cook for 10 minutes until the mixture boils and the sugar is fully dissolved.
  • 2Pour the syrup on top of the honeycomb and let it absorb for 5 minutes before serving.

Preparing the Kiri Cheese Dip

  • 1In a medium bowl, place the Kiri cheese portions and mix them using a spatula until the texture becomes smooth.
  • 2Add honey and cinnamon and mix all together. Place in a bowl and put it in the center of the honeycomb.
