There’s a Czech fairy tale about a hero who sustained himself during his adventures with these filling sweet rolls. This recipe came with the Bohemian bakers who emigrated to work for the elite in Vienna, where it eventually became Buchteln. They can be stuffed with the typical ingredients of the Austro-Hungarian baking world, (prune butter, apricot preserves, walnuts, or poppy seeds), but the farmer’s cheese is especially popular.
