Savoury anchovy and cheese buns

Savoury anchovy and cheese buns

Marta, from Sopla que te quemas, is taking part in our recipe competition with some mouth-watering savoury buns with anchovies from the Bays of Biscay and sheep’s cheese. They can be eaten both hot or cold, but we find them hard to resist, so we eat them straight out of the oven; though we do blow on them a bit to avoid burning ourselves.


  • Flour – 180 g
  • Melted butter – 180 g
  • Anchovies from the Bay of Biscay- one small tin
  • Eggs – 2
  • Milk – 100 ml
  • Powdered yeast – one tsp
  • Sugar – a pinch
  • Sheep’s cheese – (grated) 60 g


  1. Chop the anchovy fillets into small pieces and set aside.
  2. Grate the sheep’s cheese and set aside.
  3. Separate the egg whites from the yolks.
  4. Put the yolks in a bowl with the milk and the pinch of sugar and whisk.
  5. Add the flour and the yeast and mix.
  6. Add the melted butter and mix well again.
  7. Whisk the egg whites until they froth and add to the previous mixture. Mix carefully.
  8. Add the anchovies and the cheese.
  9. Pour the mixture into cupcake moulds, filling them halfway.
  10. Place in the oven preheated to 210º and bake for 15 minutes or until they are golden.

Delicious snacks, thanks Marta!
