These one bowl three cheese buns have been incredibly hard to name. I was going to name them three cheese scones or biscuits but they have the texture of soft cheesy bread. If you love mozzarella, parmigiano, and ricotta, you will absolutely love these. They are incredibly soft on the inside and form a cheesy crust on the outside. This recipe is a one bowl wonder and takes a few minutes to whip up. It doesn’t require any kneading, yeast, or precision. If you can mix a few basic ingredients in a bowl, you are capable of baking soft cheesy buns like these!

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Servings 8 buns

Ingredients
  

  • 2 eggs
  • pinch of salt to taste
  • ¼ cup grated parmigiano (50 grams)
  • ¼ cup cold water (60 ml)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (150 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (10 grams)
  • ¾ cup grated mozzarella (100 grams)
  • ¾ cup ricotta (150 grams)

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 375F.
  • In your bowl whisk the eggs, salt, parmesan and whisk. Add the water and mix again. Add in the flour and baking powder. Mix until a sticky batter forms.
  • Add in the ricotta cheese and grated mozzarella. Fold and stir it well with a spatula until combined.
  • I like to take a large ice-cream scoop and scoop 8 equal balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can also use a large spoon or measuring cup as well.
  • If you want to make these buns smaller, you can but the bake time will be less. I made 8 larger buns for this recipe by using a large ice-cream scoop to scoop them onto my parchment paper.
  • Bake at 375F for 23 minutes and we switched the oven on broil (top broiler only) for the last 1-2 minutes to get that golden cheese top. Keep a very close eye on them as you do not want them to burn.
  • You don't have to put them on broil the last minute or two if your oven is a convection oven or it bakes the buns evenly. We like to as my oven is very weak and bakes mostly from the bottom.
  • Enjoy as is or use the buns to make delicious sandwiches!

Notes

You can use any cheese you personally love. In Bulgaria we typically make something called “sirenki” or “kashkavalki” and use feta so the world is your oyster.
I have not tried making this recipe with any other flour so you will have to experiment if you do. If you do make them differently, please let us know in the comments so that we can help everyone else out as well.

Use a baking sheet lined with PARCHMENT paper so they don’t stick. Do not use wax paper as it’s not oven safe. 
Make sure the baking powder is not expired
Please use good quality cheeses if possible that are NOT pre-grated as it makes all the difference in taste and texture.

  1. I made this recipe for a family dinner today. Paired it with a creamy bratwurst stew. Oh my gosh it was amazing! Everyone raved about these buns! Definitely a must try and I will for sure be making again.

    Thank you for this recipe, so easy and truly delicious! Even though I only had access to pre-grated cheeses, the recipe works so well to create light, fluffy cheese rolls. Definitely one to repeat, thank you!

    Hi, to anyone who’s wondering, I subbed 1 cup all purpose flour for 1+1/4 cup oat flour and like a tsp of extra water and they turned out amazing! I also used cottage cheese instead of riccota
