I once took a photo of a breakfast buffet in an Austrian hotel, because I got so excited thinking of the CS girls and their bread twists. Everyone else must have thought I was mad :lol: . What a lovely article - thanks for sharing.

It is indeed a lovely article but sadly that's unlikely to be the sort of rolls they had....Austrian breakfast rolls are crusty on the outside and would look something like this or this.

In those days there also wasn't the huge variety that we find now but even then German and Austrian rolls were unbeatable!

Enjoy the plum rolls PeggyPea and welcome to the Board :D

I thoroughly enjoyed that article, :D but the rolls I always had in mind when reading about breakfasts were the ones cestina shows above.

The ones in the article are what the Czechs call "buchty", just like the Austrian "Buchteln" which is a reminder that much of the cooking of that region dates from the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire so is shared across several countries.

Those sweet buns would be an elevenses or teatime snack in the CR.

Enjoy your baking everyone - I can add some home-made plum jam from my seven Switzen plum trees. Here's a bonus recipe...

Confusingly the German for such plums is Zwetschgen and the Czech is švestky, reversing the position of the "sh" sound, and the English has no "sh" at all.

I notice that an earlier recipe is Omelette aux fines herbes which is made by Simone for Joey in "Camp"

Thanks for the bonus recipe, Cestina. It brought back memories of my late mother-in-law who made delicious Zwetschgenkuchen - except she didn't pronounce it that way as she only spoke Schwäbisch (Swabian). Interestingly we call them Zwetschen here in the north - without the g. We have a tree in our garden.
I'm sure the CS girls would have eaten the cake as it would have been easy for Karen to make.
I also agree about the rolls you suggested too. Nevertheless it's great to have a CS reference in such a newspaper.

That is a nice article. One of the rolls cestina linked look just like the so-called Vienna rolls you can buy here.
