These are really good. These have a wonderful texture and can be made with all sorts of fruit filling. These are made with blueberry. So try them and use what you like. These would be great for breakfast, because they are not really very sweet.

Making this recipe says it yields 34 buns, which is way to much for us unless we're having a large gathering. So I 1/2 ed the recipe. Came out great.
Printable4 1/2 cups (650 g) all-purpose flour, sifted
3/4 cup (100 g) cake flour, sifted
2 1/4 tsp (1 envelope, or 8 g) instant dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp (50 g) white sugar
2 cups (480 ml) milk, lukewarm
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup (100 ml) vegetable oil
orange zest from one orange
1 cup mixed berry jam
1/4 cup (50 g) butter (for brushing between buns and baking pan)
1 egg for egg wash
powdered sugar (optional)
Instructions:Combine all the dry ingredients together (flour, cake flour, instant dry yeast, sugar, and salt). Add the lukewarm milk, eggs, vanilla extract, vegetable oil and the orange zest. You can knead this by hand, or make it easy on yourself and use your mixer. Mix until the dough is smooth, add more flour as needed. The dough needs to be just a little bit sticky. Place the dough in an oiled bowl and let it rest in a warm place.
Let the dough rest until it doubles in size, usually about an hour.
Punch down the dough and roll out onto a slightly floured work surface. Roll it out so that it’s a big rectangle about 14 inches by 18 inches . It should be about 1/2 inch in thickness. Using a pastry cutter, a pizza cutter, or a knife, cut the dough into about 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch squares.
Using your fingers make a small indentation into each square and place about 1 tsp of jam in the center. Carefully fold each square in half and pinch the ends together. The dough should be sticky enough so that it sticks together.
Repeat these steps until all rolls are made. Place the dough onto a buttered pan and brush some more butter on the sides of the rolls, so that they don’t stick together.
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
Brush them with egg wash, and let them rest for an additional 20 minutes. They will rise a bit more.
Bake them for about 25 to 30 minutes, until nice and golden brown.
Serve sprinkled with some powdered sugar.
