Cooking steps

Preparing the Dough

  1. In a small bowl, add the sugar, dry yeast, water, and mix well with a spoon until well combined. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. In 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.
  3. Cover the dough and set aside at room temperature for 40 minutes to rise.

Preparing the Kiri Cheese Balls

  1. Cut each Kiri into 4 cubes.
  2. In 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

  • Using your hands, form small balls with the dough. Slightly spread each ball until its 5 cm long.
  • Place a walnut, kiri cheese, and roll them around to shape small buns.
  • In 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.
  • In a small bowl, mix the egg and vinegar until well combined, brush the honeycomb with the egg mixture, and top with sesame seeds.
  • Place the honeycomb in a preheated oven at 180C (356F) and bake for 35 minutes or until its golden brown.

Preparing the Syrup

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

Preparing the Kiri Cheese Dip

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