Twisted Snail Buns

It’s more than certain that nothing can top off a homemade pastry for breakfast. The smell only, increases your appetite and awakens all of your senses. From the time this baking marathon has started I have been baking something or the other for breakfast. Today I am sharing with you twisted snail buns and they look amazing on first sight.

The most interesting part is that the preparation of these snails is not complicated at all. Although it seems as though you’ll have to have some special skills in order to get them right, trust me you will make it on the first try. With a little patience and a little more persistence you will get perfectly home baked snails to treat your loved ones or to surprise your colleges at work.

We had this for breakfast along with a bowl of muesli and milk. And believe me it was a very heavy breakfast. Do try this out.

Country: Macedonia


All purpose flour - 2 cups
Milk - 1/4 cup
Wate2 - 1/4 cup
fresh yeast - 2 tsp
oil - 2 tbsp
salt -  to taste
sugar -  1 tsp
olive oil
Milk (to glaze) - 2 tbsp
herb powders 


  • In a bowl, whisk together water, sugar and yeast and let it sit for about 10 minutes. In large bowl add sifted flour, salt, milk, oil and add the yeast. Knead until you get smooth and elastic dough. Cover bowl with towel and let it rest until doubled in size, about one hour.
  • After dough has risen, divide in 8 equal parts of dough and roll out each part into a rectangle of about 25 cm x 15 cm. Brush the dough with olive oil.
  • Cut the dough into strips about 2 cm wide. Starting from the shortest end, diagonally roll the dough until you get a long roll, and then twist it around to shape it into a snail shell.
  • Lay them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and let the buns rest for about 30 minutes
  • glaze the buns with milk. Sprinkle a mix of herbs on the top and bake in the oven about 15 minutes at 230 degree C or until golden brown.
