The general principles of making banana-filled puffs from purchased and home-made dough will be identical.

Cooking Features

Cooking puffs from the finished dough does not seem like a difficult task even to an inexperienced cook. Making buns from homemade dough will be a little more difficult, as the puff pastry is kneaded in several steps. Regardless of whether you use homemade or purchased dough, you will need to know a few things to get tasty banana puffs.

  • You will need flour, regardless of whether you are making the dough yourself or rolling it out, otherwise it will stick to the rolling pin, board and hands. This product is desirable to choose high quality. Second-grade flour gives products an unappetizing color and specific taste. Also flour must be sieved. This will allow not only to rid it of small litter and insect larvae, but also to saturate it with oxygen, making it easier.
  • Bananas for the filling should be taken ripe, but not overripe. Such fruits are the most tasty and healthy.
  • Bananas contain a significant amount of sugars and have a sweet taste. In the stuffing made from these fruits, you can not add sugar or use it in a minimum amount.
  • If you decide to make the puff pastry yourself, follow the technology for kneading it. This concerns the temperature of the products, the number of dough rolling and the duration of the break between them.
  • To make the puffs rise well, they are placed in an already preheated oven and try not to open the oven door during baking. Bake puff pastry cakes for 15-20 minutes at a temperature of 200-220 degrees.
  • To make the puffs rosy, they are smeared with a beaten egg or yolk before being placed in the oven.

Puff buns are tasty, even if they are just filled with banana slices, but an even more exquisite dessert will come out if the main ingredient of the filling is added with chocolate, nut paste, cottage cheese or other tasty products.
