Hamburg Franzbrötchen

Attention for all non-Hamburg people (by the way, in Hamburg those people are called “Quiddje”): Although the name sounds like a sort of bread roll (Brötchen means roll), Franzbrötchen actually have nothing in common with rolls. It is a sweet, buttery pastry with cinnamon. In Hamburg people like it for breakfast.

Cinnamon bun (Franzbrötchen)

(approx. 16-18 pieces – needs 1.5 h time for rising + 20 minutes baking time each tray)

Attention: during baking a part of the butter leaks on to the baking tray. Don’t worry, that’s normal. After baking, take the baking tray out of the oven and leave the pastry on it for another 10 minutes, then a part of the butter has been absorbed again.

What does Ratatouille have in common with Frankfurt Green Sauce?

Granted, at first glance (or better: bite) not much. But surely there are infinitely many, different opinions about the “what” and “how” for both dishes. What exactly are the ingredients and how exactly is it prepared. One thing seems indisputable: tomatoes, aubergines, zucchini and peppers are a must, everything else can.
