Baked Piroshki Recipe (2 Filling Options: Sweet or Savory!)

These baked piroshki are ultra soft. I made half of them with caramelized apples and half with braised cabbage and beef. Both were excellent fillings.

These baked piroshki are ultra soft. I made half of them with caramelized apples and half with braised cabbage and beef. Both were excellent fillings. I took these baked piroshki over to my sister’s house still warm from the oven and my sister admitted to eating 6 of them. She loved ’em! Actually everyone did.

Between the two filled 9×13″ pans, I only brought home 6 piroshky/buns. I bet this dough would make great dinner rolls. I’ve also been thinking to wrap the dough around sausages to make pretzel dogs. I can’t stop thinking about this dough!

Ingredients for Baked Piroshki:

2 cups warm milk
1 Tbsp active dry yeast
1/2 cup sugar, divided
6 cups + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour, (divided into 1 cup and 5 cups + 2 Tbsp) *measured correctly
3 eggs,
1 and 1/2 Tbsp melted butter
1 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten for egg wash

Baked Piroshki with Braised Cabbage

Tip for Success:

A yeast dough will rise much faster in a warm oven. When letting a yeast dough rise in the oven, it should never be hotter than 100˚F. If you have a proofing option on your oven, use it. My old oven didn’t have such a luxury and the low setting was at 150˚F which will start cooking your bread, deactivate the yeast and ruin your buns.

I used to get creative by preheating to low, turning the oven off, propping the door with a wooden spoon and placing my dough over a towel in the oven. I’ve ruined yeast dough before by letting it get to hot and I’d love to spare you the same disappointment.

For the Apple Filling:

Use the apple filling from the fried apple pirojki: 2 medium apples + 1/4 cup sugar. Chop apples finely in food processor then saute with 1/4 cup sugar over medium high heat for 10 min stirring often until most of the juice has evaporated. Set aside to cool. For sweet piroshki, brush the top with sugar water as soon as they are done baking. (1 Tbsp sugar dissolved into 2 Tbsp warm water).

For the Braised Cabbage filling:

Click here for the Braised cabbage with Beef recipe. P.S. Make sure to cut your beef small if using for piroshki.

How to Make the Baked Piroshki/Buns:

Preheat your oven to 360°F at step 13.
1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, add 2 cups warm milk and sprinkle the top with 1 Tbsp yeast. Let sit for 5-7 five minutes.

2. Add 1 cup flour and 1/4 cup sugar. Whisk together until blended and let it rise at room temperature for 30-45 minutes. It will rise faster in a warm place (20 minutes in a 100˚ Foven, but don’t let it get hotter than that or it will start to cook and ruin the yeast).

3. Whisk in the 3 eggs, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, 1.5 Tbsp melted butter and 1 tsp salt. Now using the dough hook, add the flour 1 cup at a time letting it blend into the dough before adding the next cup. (Add the last cup 1/2 cup at a time so you don’t over-do it).

You know you’ve added enough flour when the dough is no longer sticking to the walls of the bowl.  So, all together from start to finish, I used 6 cups + 2 Tbsp but it could vary slightly depending on the flour you use. Mix/knead on low speed with the dough hook for 15 minutes. .

4. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm 100˚ oven for 1 hour (2 hours in a warm room). The dough will triple in volume. Be patient. It’s all worth it in the end. 😉

5. Transfer your dough to a good non-stick surface and cut into 5 equal pieces. Working with one piece at a time, roll each piece of dough into a 13-14″ circle.

6. Cut each circle with a pizza cutter into 8 equal triangles. Place about 1/2 Tbsp of filling onto the middle of the wide portion of each triangle (The OXO mini scoop makes this job easier. I love this little contraption!)

7. To Roll: pinch the two edges together over the filling and seal all the way down. Seal the dough to the base over the filling. Fold in the little corners and roll it forward. Since it helps to visualize, here’s a picture of all the rolling steps from left to right:

8. Once the piroshki are rolled up, place on a parchment lined baking sheet 1/2″ apart with the flap side facing down so they aren’t tempted to unroll.  Let the piroshki rise in a warm 100˚ oven for 20 minutes until they look puffy (30-45 minutes in a warm room).

(See how they puff up nicely and are now touching each other? Now they’re ready for the oven)

9. Beat 1 egg and brush the tops of the piroshki with the beaten egg. Bake at 360˚F for 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

If you are making the sweet apple piroshki, brush them with your sugar/water glaze just as soon as they are out of the oven to give them some extra shimmer and sweetness.

How to Make the Piroshki/Buns: (Preheat your oven to 360° F at step 8).

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, add 2 cups warm milk and sprinkle the top with 1 Tbsp yeast. Let sit for 5-7 five minutes.
  2. Add 1 cup flour and 1/4 cup sugar. Whisk together until blended and let it rise at room temperature for 30-45 minutes. It will rise faster in a warm place (20 minutes in a 100˚ oven, but don't let it get hotter than that or it will start to cook and ruin the yeast).

You know you've added enough flour when the dough is no longer sticking to the walls of the bowl. I ended up adding 6 cups + 2 Tbsp but it could vary slightly depending on the flour you use. Mix/knead on low speed with the dough hook for 15 minutes.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm 100˚F oven for 1 hour (2 hours in a warm room). The dough will triple in volume. Be patient. It's all worth it in the end.

Recipe Notes

If you are making the sweet apple piroshki, brush them with your sugar/water glaze just as soon as they are out of the oven to give them some extra shimmer and sweetness.
Tip for Success: Yeast dough will rise much faster in a warm oven. When letting a yeast dough rise in the oven, it should never be hotter than 100˚F.

    I have a question, what is the difference between your two braised cabbage recipes (one with pork and the other with beef,) besides that they are different meat, and which one would be better to use for these poroshki if I plan to make them meatless? Thanks!! I cant wait to try this recipe~! Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      May 4, 2014

      The one with pork is easier, but the beef one has a little more depth of flavor. Either one would be great to be honest. The biggest difference is that one uses sauerkraut and the other doesn’t; the rest is pretty minor. Go with whichever one you have the ingredients for. Reply

    Thanks for sharing so many great recipes.
    I see you are using a Kitchen Aid mixer in so many recipes.
    I’m not even sure if I can always use another brand, to get the same good result.
    Would you mind to share what model of Kitchen Aid mixer you are using?
    I saw there are 5 qt and 6 qt, Artisan and Pro. I have no idea which one to choose.

    Thank you for your clear instructions and photos. I have tried to make piroshki twice before (including yesterday), only to have it end up a полный провал. I realized yesterday after my failure that the problem wasn’t the recipes per se, but rather that they assumed that I, a very inexperienced baker, knew what I was doing with respect to yeast. Having tried many of your recipes before and knowing how basic and detailed you make everything, I made these today and they are WONDERFUL! Высшее класс! Thank you! Reply

    Natasha – I don’t have a mixer with a bread hook – just a regular mixer with 2 beaters. Can I do this by hand? Would I then knead it? And for about how long? I am making these for the olympic opening on Friday night. I got ambitious and offered to make these and a version of Kulebyaka -have never made either! Should be fun! Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      February 5, 2014

      Do you happen to have a bread maker? You could make the entire dough using the dough function. It’s going to be a decent amount of kneading. Knead until your dough is soft and no longer sticks to your fingers. Reply

      • Ellie
        February 5, 2014

        Thanks for your reply! No, no bread maker – but I’ll knead it – I am sure there were piroshkis long before there were bread hooks! Wish me luck! Reply

  • So I made these over the weekend and I loved the texture of the dough and my husband couldn’t get enough (while wanting to kill me at the same time, because he’s been trying to cut this kind of stuff out of his diet completely)))! The only thing I will do differently next time is add more sugar, because my spoiled taste buds didn’t detect any once baked, I am not sure why… Will post the recipe soon 🙂 Reply

    Hi Natasha, I was just looking for some dinner ideas for the weekend and saw this recipe. My grandma used to make piroshki and I loved them. I want to try make it, but I have a couple of questions. How warm should the milk be? After the dough rises is that when I add the rest of the ingredients? For the cabbage filled recipe do I use the amount of the ingredients in the braised cabbage recipe? I was thinking it might be too much.
    By the way, absolutely LOVE your blog, it is pretty much my go to place for meal ideas. Reply

      January 29, 2014

      Warm the milk to no more than 100˚F. No warmer than a baby’s bath water ;). It should be warm but not hot. For the cabbage filled ones, you might use 1/4 of the braised cabbage recipe. Yes, after the dough rises the first time, you add the rest of the ingredients in step 3. 🙂 Thanks so much for your awesome compliment. I’m so happy you are enjoying my blog! Reply

        February 5, 2014

        Well, I have finally tried to make the piroshki. Yumm! The dough (thing I was most nervous the most) came out like it was supposed to, it rose on time and all. I did have some problems however with some of the other steps, so I have a couple of more questions. How do I roll the dough out in more of a circle rather than an irregular shape? After baking my piroshki on the parchment paper, they got stuck to it and some of them broke open when I took them off. I wonder, is there a wrong side to the parchment paper or should I spread something (flour or some oil) on the paper prior to putting the piroshki on it? I also noticed that the pan you used is like a loaf pan, but bigger. I used a cookie sheet, should I use similar baking pan to yours, or are there other options? Thank you so much in advance and I apologize for such a long post. Reply

          I didn’t have a problem with them sticking to the parchment paper but lets try to troubleshoot. What did you fill the piroshki with? Were they sticking to the parchment paper because juice leaked out of them? A baking sheet would work fine, it shouldn’t make a difference. You used parchment paper, not wax paper, correct? Just want to be sure :). Reply

          • Yulia
            February 10, 2014

            Sorry for the delayed response, I was working all weekend. Okay, so it was wax paper. And I filled some with the apple filling and some with meat and mushrooms. It didn’t look like the juice leaked out, but then again… I’ll have to try again in the coming weeks using parchment paper instead of wax. Thank you so much!

    Hello! Any suggestions for other sweet fillings that don’t include anything fruity? Still keeping the Russian-ness of course! We’re having an international day in my school in a few weeks, and my groups got Russia!

    P.S. your blog is so helpful with providing so many gorgeous and intriguing Russian recipes, way to go and thank you! 🙂 Reply

    Hi! Thanks so much for a great recipe,
    I am making this second time already and have same problem, in your recipe you said 6 cups of flour ,in the description bellow pictures you said you ended up adding 6 cups of flour, so was it 7 cups total or 6? Thanks so much!
    I added 7 and they turned out wonderful! I made them with poppy seeds, and that was from your recipes as we’ll, (from the truffles ;), just an idea you could add to your piroshki comments. Thanks and many more thanks, you are my favorite cook book now 😉 Reply

    Наташ привет. Решила сделать эти пирожки сегодня, но так как моя духовка не опускает температуру ниже чем 175, то я оставила тесто подниматься при комнатной температуре. Уже прошло 2 часа, но тесто не поднялось 🙁 может это быть что я смешала дрожжи с теплым молоком, хотя у тебя в рецепте написано просто насыпать дрожжи в молоко. Или может я много муки поставила? Как думаешь из-за чего оно не поднимаеться?? Чтоб знать мне на будущее 😉 спасибо. Reply

      Was your milk too hot maybe? Here’s a tip for Success: Yeast dough will rise much faster in a warm oven. When letting a yeast dough rise in the oven, it should never be hotter than 100˚F. My old oven had a low setting at 150˚F which will start cooking your bread, deactivate the yeast and ruin your buns. I used to get creative by preheating to low, turning the oven off, propping the door with a wooden spoon and placing my dough over a towel in the oven. I’ve ruined yeast dough before by letting it get to hot and I’d love to spare you the same disappointment. What temperature was the room that you left the dough in? Reply

      • veta
        January 9, 2014

        Room temperature was 72, and as I said earlier my oven temperature doesn’t go below 170 F. I was thinking maybe I can buy heat blanket and use it for rising the dough lol 😉 они получились не такие пышные, но моим малым очень понравились. Спасибки за рецептик. 🙂 Reply

          You might try the method I shared with turning it off and propping it open a little next time. It worked for me in the past. It really needs a warm place to rise well and quickly. Reply

        • Vera
          January 14, 2014

          hi vita my oven also doesn’t go below 170 so whenever I use the oven for yeast dough I just turn it on 170 but don’t let it to preheat to 170 turn it off when it’s about 100. Also you can let it get up to 170 then open the oven door for few minutes and let temperature drop to about 100. I always use my oven for yeast dough hope it helps 🙂 Reply

            You can use your dishwasher to proof the dough. Run it empty a few minutes then put in the covered dough. Works great.

      • It could be that your yeast was old. If it’s old, the dough will either not rise at all or rise very slowly. Reply

    Hi Natasha,
    These looks so yummy! My whole family loves piroshki! I’m trying the apple ones tonight 🙂 I noticed you wrote that a bread machine would also work for the dough. Do I just add all the ingredients in the order they are listed & turn on the dough setting? My bread machine pan is only for a 2 pound sized loaf so I’m wondering if that may be too much dough if I add 6 cups of dough? Reply

    • Natasha

      January 8, 2014

      It should still work for that much dough. The person who shared this recipe with me said she uses a bread machine. make sure you are using the dough function so your machine doesn’t start baking the dough 🙂 Reply

      • Marina
        January 10, 2014

        Thanks! I made the dough in the bread machine, and it turned out perfect! So airy and fluffy that the lid from the machine opened before it even finished rising. LOL!

            January 20, 2014

            Sorry I just saw this message. What I did was the 1st step of letting the yeast sit in the warm milk for 5-7 minutes. Then I added all the rest of the ingredients into the pan and turned the dough cycles on the bread machine. It turned out great!
            Today I plan I trying the cabbage ones 🙂

    Hi Natasha, made them today doubled the recipe because I don’t make piroshki often but when I do it takes all day. My fillings were farmers cheese, apples, sour cherries and plum butter.

    i was looking at the braised beef and cabbage recipe and i wanted to know at what point do you put the filling in the pirozhki.
    do you do it after you have cooked it for an hour in the dutch oven ? or was that just the alternate recipe if you want to have it separately with the bread on the side?
    or do you do it after you have seared the meat and cooked the carrots and other veggies and added the tomato paste.?

Thanks so much Natasha, I was SO excited when I saw pirozhki’s picture yesterday! One quick question: what would be the best way to store these for freshness?

      It depends on what you filled them with. With preserves/jam, they would probably be ok in a large ziploc bag at room temp. If it’s something more perishable, you should refrigerate. Reply

    Hi! Thanks for great recipe! SO, is this a similar recipe to the one that you have for sweet version of piroshky? I am planning on making sweet piroshky so I already tried your other recipe, and I am wondering if I should stick with the original or try this new version????? I also think Canadian flour would taste better? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      January 4, 2014

      The other recipe uses Canadian flour and the other one didn’t work well with regular all-purpose flour. If you love that recipe and you use Canadian flour, you should stick with it. The result is similar. This one is just a teensy bit healthier with less butter and I can use my organic all-purpose flour which is a plus, but the other one is really really good too! If you’re comfortable already with the other one, stick with it 🙂 Hope that helps! Reply

      • allison
        January 5, 2014

        Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will eventually try this one though, may be when I run out of Canadian flour…? Speaking of healthier alternatives, have you heard of whole wheat white four? It’s pretty much like the whole wheat flour except it’s almost white and it’s still whole grain (it’s NOT a combination of wheat with white flour, instead its milled from hard white spring wheat, rather than traditional red wheat). I used it in my pancakes, cookies and breaded meat recipes. I used to order it online and pay shipping charges, now it’s available in Fred Meyers! Yes!

        Another question, when you respond to my posts, I never receive an email, I have to remember to go back to your website and find the recipe where I posted a question and look for it to find your answer. Is this typical? Or should I expect an email with the answer? Reply

      Ha ha. Not usually, but for you,…. ;). I hope you love them. They sure do make your house smell good. And if I were to deliver them, then you wouldn’t have the yummy house smell effect. 😉 Reply

  • They look like little babies wrapped up in a blanket:) please pass 20, this way please))) Reply

    I am not the best baker–do you think grocery store bread dough would work for this? Do you think beef, rice and onion cooked filling would also work? Reply

      THe filling sounds really tasty, but I have no idea about the store-bought bread dough. To be honest, I haven’t tried using it. I don’t think you’d get the same results because I’ve never tried a store-bought bread that is even similar to the dough consistency of these piroshky. If you get a chance, I hope you give this a whirl 🙂 Reply

      I make piroshki with Rhodes white dinner rolls. They’re sold in a pack of 36 in the freezer section. I’ve used them both for fried piroshki and baked ones with cabbage and they turn out amazing.. I don’t even bother making homemade dough anymore. Reply

        What stores do they sell the rhodes dinner rolls. I’ve never seen them before, but I also haven’t looked for them I guess 🙂 Thanks for the tip! That sounds like a great time saver if you’re in a hurry. Reply

          I usually buy them at Winco or Walmart.. sorry about the 4 star rating idk how that happened. I haven’t tried your dough but your cabbage filling is definitely a 5 star! Reply

      Thank you Zina! The trick is to keep the filling and juices from seeping out. That way you get to enjoy all the tastiness in your mouth instead of on the pan. 😉 Reply

      They only look like a lot of work because I included a lot of pictures. They aren’t too much work, but they do take a lot of time because you have to wait for the dough to rise. I hope you do give these a try one day. They are delicious! Reply

      Natasha,
      I stumbled upon your recipe when I was looking for Russian/Ukrainian recipes. I grew up in Siberia, and never had the chance to make piroshki in an oven. I have always deep fried/fried them. I baked them today with apple filling, and added nutella because who doesn’t love nutella?! Although I make my own dough(my babushkas recipe), I will try yours next time! They came out so fluffy, love how easy and fast it is to bake them. Reply
