Buchty or české buchty (sing. buchta) are sweet rolls made of yeast dough, filled with jam, ground poppy seeds or curd. Each of them is made separately and although we put them next to each other in a large pan where they stick together, after baking they are still easy to split up. The traditional Buchta is filled with traditional plum butter (povidla). They are topped with vanilla sauce, powdered sugar or eaten plain and warm.
The country of their origin is Bohemia but they play an important role in the whole Central Europe. In Germany they are called Buchteln, in Bavaria Rohrnudeln, we have Serbian and Croatian Buhtle, Slovenian Buhteljni and Hungarian bukta.
