Preparation Time:

12 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 3 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 5 tbsp maple sugar
  • 1 cup milk, heated for 30 seconds in the microwave
  • 1/2 tbsp fine salt
  • 1 sachet (8 g) of dry yeast
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1 egg and a little milk to make the egg wash
  • Chunks of maple sugar for garnish


  1. Put 35 ml (1/8 cup) hot water into a small bowl and add the yeast.
  2. Use a food processor to blend the flour, sugar, milk, salt, egg, butter, and yeast. The dough should be soft and consistent, and come away from the bowl.
  3. Heat the oven for 3-4 minutes, turn it off, and put in a bowl of water.
  4. Fold the dough over itself several times, cover with a damp cloth, and put in the oven for an hour until it doubles in size.
  5. Transfer it to the fridge and leave for a few hours (or overnight).
  6. On a lightly floured work surface, divide the dough into 12 parts.
  7. Use a pin to roll them into rectangles. Fold them over a few times, then shape into rolls.
  8. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange rolls on it and brush them with egg wash, then sprinkle with the maple sugar chunks. Leave to rise by 50% in a warm (25° C) room.
  9. Place the rack below centre position in the oven and preheat to 160° C (325° F)
  10. Place rolls in oven and bake for 15 – 20 minutes until nicely browned, making sure the bottoms don’t burn. Double the baking sheet to prevent this, if necessary.
  11. Allow to cool on a rack.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
